MAGPIS: The Multi-Array Galactic Plane Imaging Survey

Robert H. Becker, David J. Helfand, Richard L. White

The Multi-Array Galactic Plane Imaging Survey collects, as its namesake is wont to do, bits and pieces of the Galactic sky that have been imaged at high resolution. Currently this web site includes the 6 and 20 cm VLA radio images and catalogs described in White, Becker & Helfand (2005, AJ, 130, 586), as well as the main MAGPIS database of high-dynamic range, high-sensitivity VLA images for the region 5° < l < 48.5°, |b| < 0.8° (Helfand et al., 2006, AJ, 131, 2525). Much of this latter area is being imaged with XMM-Newton at hard-X-ray wavelengths and by the GLIMPSE Spitzer legacy project at 3.6, 4.5, 5.8 and 8µm, and all of it has been mapped at mid-infrared wavelengths by MSX. Mosaics of both the GLIMPSE and MSX infrared data, gridded onto the same coordinate system as the radio images, are included at this site, as will be the X-ray data as they become available.
