Combined Data Maps The combined data maps, in Healpix format, with resolution parameter Nside = 8192. The maps are in Equatorial coordinates, and in RING ordering. The resolution is 1.85 arcmin. They can be easily read using the healpy read_map function. 3 files < 176.2 MB
Combined Null Maps Five combined null maps for each band (15 maps in total), in the same format as the combined data maps. These maps should contain no astrophysical signal but have the same noise properties as the data. 15 files < 176.5 MB
Combined Data alms The spherical harmonic coefficients of the combined data maps. The inverse spherical harmonic transform of these is equal to the combined data maps. 3 files < 745 MB
M_lm Filters The two-dimensional filter M_lm. These are double precision real arrays, and are indexed the same as the alm arrays. The alms for each frequency band have been multiplied by their corresponding filters (indicated by the filenames). 3 files < 8.1 MB
SPT Only Data Maps One SPT-SZ data map for each band, in the same Healpix format as the other maps described above. These are the same maps that we combine with Planck data. They have been multiplied by the appropriate calibration factors to convert to units of uK_CMB. The resolution of these maps is described by a Gaussian with FWHM equal to 1.75 arcmin (slightly different from the combined data maps). The SPT filter response has not been deconvolved from these maps. Bright sources have not been masked from these maps. Only a boundary mask was applied. 3 files, 177 MB each
SPT Only Half Depth Maps Half-depth SPT-SZ data maps (2 maps for each band). These are produced by splitting the observations into two sets with independent noise. These have the same resolution, mask, and format as the SPT data maps. 6 files, < 177.7 MB each
SPT Only Null Maps Five null maps for each SPT data map. 14 files, < 177.9 MB each
SPT Filter Transfer Functions The filter transfer functions (t_lm as described in the paper) for each SPT-SZ data map, up to lmax = 10000. These are stored in the same way as the combined data a_lm files. Note that t_lm does not include the 1.75 arcmin Gaussian beam. 3 files, < 953 MB each
SPT Gaussian Beam The 1.75 arcmin FWHM Gaussian beam (B_l). This is a binary file containing the value of B_l from l=0 to l=10000. 1 file 80 KB
Mask The boundary and point source mask that was used in the analysis. This is in Healpix format, Nside = 8192, and in Equatorial coordinates. 1 file 20.4 MB
Boundary Mask The boundary mask that was applied to the SPT-only data products. 1 file 6.2 mbira
Python Script For Reading Data A python script containing an example of how the alm's and M_lm files are read, and how one might alter the filtering in the maps if desired. 1 file 2 KB
