MAGPIS: Help for GPS Cutout Extractions

The GPS cutout page allows you to extract a section of an image from the VLA Galactic Plane Surveys at multiple frequencies. See the MAGPIS home page for a brief description of the surveys and the publications page for papers with detailed survey descriptions and analysis.

Cutout Extraction Form Parameters

The form allows you to specify the survey, the position and size of the extracted image, the type of the returned image (FITS or GIF), and, for GIF images, the intensity scaling used to display the image. There are forms for both single-band image extractions and for multi-band color image extractions. Use the link underneath the Submit button to access the color and non-color versions of the form.
