New Aladin allsky surveys

Posted by Pierre Fernique on 02 March 2012 11:32 CET

The Aladin team is pleased to announce that several new allsky HEALPix surveys are available on our site :


  • 2MASS J, H, K (JPEG or FITS tiles) + 1 colored composition
  • GALEX + GALEX AIS (JPEG or FITS tiles) + 2 colored compositions

These surveys are accessible in Aladin via the menu "File => allsky => ..." or via the tab "all-sky" in the server selector.

Note : if you have not used Aladin for a while, you may need to reload survey definitions via the menu Edit => user preferences => reload.



For quick tests via the applet:
- GALEX around M31
- 2MASS milky way

The HEALPix tree hierarchies are directly accessible at : http://alasky.u-strasbg.fr/2MASS/
and http://alasky.u-strasbg.fr/GALEX/
