These are the coadded maps of Q and U for Field A shown in the bottom two panels of Figure 4 in Kusaka et al. The HEALPix FITS file contains the following fields in order:

(Q, U, QQ, QU, UU).

The power spectra of the maps (after being multiplied by the source mask) divided by the transfer function and the window function are given in the files of the power spectra.

Units are thermodynamic microkelvin for the Q and U maps and microkelvin2 for QQ, QU, and UU covariance matrix maps.
