Atlas of High-Resolution Maps of Nearby Galaxies


The Atlas of High-Resolution Maps of Nearby Galaxies (Rice 1993) contains maps of approximately 1' resolution of the 30 most extended galaxies in the Large Optical Galaxy Catalog. High-resolution maps in the 12, 25, 60, and 100 micron bands were produced using the Maximum Correlation Method. Corresponding reference images of simulated point sources in each field are included in the atlas to indicate the effective resolution of the maps at several stages of processing (1, 5, 10, and 20 iterations).

Rice, W., 1993, AJ, 105, 67.
