The European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory flew the largest single mirror (3.5-m in diameter) ever built for a space telescope. Herschel covered the spectral range from the far-infrared to submillimeter. This Space Observatory comprised three instruments :
- The Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS) instrument
- The Spectral and Photometric Imaging REceiver (SPIRE) instrument
- The Heterodyne Instrument for the Far Infrared (HIFI) instrument
The photometric bands are centered at 70, 100 and 160 microns for PACS, and at 250, 350 and 500 microns for SPIRE, with an angular resolution going from 5 arcsec to 37 arcsec.

CADE currently only serves SPIRE photometric data for each Key-Programs. Healpix maps at 250 microns and 350 microns have been smoothed to 37 arcsec. The units of the Healpix maps are MJy/sr.


Following are the Herschel Key Programs with SPIRE photometric observations. Healpix and HiPS maps can be downloaded on each page:
