The AKARI/FIS Bright Source Catalog Version 1.0 provides the positions and fluxes of 427,071 point sources in the four far-infrared wavelengths centred at 65, 90, 140, and 160 μm. The sensitivity in the 90 μm band is about 0.55 Jy.

The AKARI/IRC Point Source Catalog Version 1.0 provides positions and fluxes of 870,973 sources (844,649 sources in 9μm band and 194,551 sources in 18μm band) in the Mid-Infrared wavelengths.

Each catalog is available in FITS file and text file formats, and has accompanying release notes in PDF format. Users of the catalogs are strongly recommended to read the release notes prior to playing with the data.

User interfaces to search and obtain catalog data and related information are available from the AKARI Catalogue Archive Server (AKARI-CAS).
