New INTEGRAL Galactic Plane Survey in SkyView

A new INTEGRAL Galactic plane survey has been added using data provided by R. Krivonos and colleagues.  (See paper and web site).   This survey combines 9 years of INTEGRAL IBIS observations from December 2002 through January 2011 into a single Galactic Plane image. A total of 135 megaseconds of exposure is included in the observations used. Survey data is generated for the Galactic plane in the region |b| <= 17.5. This survey is sensitive to about 1 millicrab in the hard X-ray range from 17-80 keV.

INTEGRAL Galactic Plane Survey: The Galactic Center

 

These data are based on observations with INTEGRAL, an ESA project with instruments and science data centre funded by ESA member states (especially the PI countries: Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Spain), Poland and with the participation of Russia and the USA.
