Canadian Galactic Plane Survey (CGPS)

These observations of atomic Hydrogen and radio continuum emission from our Galaxy have been done using the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory (DRAO), at 1420 MHz. The surveys cover Galactic longitudes 63° < l < 175° and latitudes -3.5° < b < 5.5°. The resolution is 1'.

The following data are part of the Canadian Galactic Plane Survey (CGPS) consortium. The maps, in brightness units (K km/s), are the result of the integration of the atomic observations data cube over the 272 channels (with a velocity resolution of 1.3 km/s).
