Description

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.

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.

SPT Only Null Maps

Five null maps for each SPT data map.
