Foreground: AKARI All-Sky Maps

The first file listed for each map contains HEALPix format data stored in a binary table extension. For the convenience of users who do not require the capabilities that HEALPix offers, we also provide maps in two projected image formats: Mollweide and Zenith Equal Area (ZEA). These files contain the string "_mollweide" and "_zea" respectively, and may be displayed with standard astronomical display software such as DS9 and SAOImage. The original HEALPix maps were degraded in resolution from Nside=4096 to Nside=1024 (from 0.86 arcminute to 3.4 arcminute pixel spacing) before they were projected to Mollweide or ZEA.

Recommended download procedure for '.fits' or '.tar.gz' files:
right click on the file name and save. For more information on the use of Dataset IDs,
see the LAMBDA Products Overview.

Scripts using wget and curl have been provided to facilitate bulk download of the data on this page:
