is a catalog of 245,889 well-confirmed
point sources, i.e., sources with angular
extents less than approximately 0.5',
0.5', 1.0', and 2.0' in the in-scan
direction at 12, 25, 60, and 100 microns,
Faint Source Reject Catalog contains
593,516 sources rejected for inclusion
in the Faint Source Catalog because
they failed to meet one or more of the
criteria established to ensure the reliability
of the FSC. More...
Small-Scale Structure (SSS) Catalog,
also known as the catalog of "small
extended sources," contains sources
resolved by the IRAS in any band (12,
25, 60, or 100 microns) but smaller
than 8' in angular extent. More...
convenience in studying Galactic phenomena,
the sky survey data (three sky coverages)
within 10° of the Galactic plane
were reprojected from the 16.5°
x 16.5° Sky Flux Plates into Galactic
images were produced by dividing the
0.5° x 0.5° beam data contained
in the standard Zodiacal Observation
History File into the three separate
sky coverages (HCONs) and assembling
them into three maps with an Aitoff
equal area projection in Galactic coordinates.
data products are time-ordered versions
of the entire IRAS sky survey and were
created to aid modeling and extracting
the zodiacal emission intensity in the
various extended source data products.
catalog of galaxies and quasars observed
by IRAS (the "Extragalactic Catalog")
is a compilation of IRAS Point Source
Catalog data for objects appearing in
the most widely-used extragalactic catalogs.
catalog contains redshifts of sources
selected from the Point Source Catalog.
The sample is flux limited to 1.2 Jy
at 60 microns, and a color criterion,
f_60 > sqrt(f_12 * f_25), where f_w
is the flux density at wavelength w,
was used to select galaxies over stars
and other sources within the Milky Way.
