Maps of Dust Infrared Emission for Use in Estimation of Reddening and Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation Foregrounds
We present a full-sky 100 μm map that is a reprocessed composite of the COBE/DIRBE and IRAS/ISSA maps, with the zodiacal foreground and confirmed point sources removed. Before using the ISSA maps, weExpand

Measuring Reddening with Sloan Digital Sky Survey Stellar Spectra and Recalibrating SFD
We present measurements of dust reddening using the colors of stars with spectra in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. We measure reddening as the difference between the measured and predicted colors of aExpand

The Milky Way Tomography with SDSS. I. Stellar Number Density Distribution
Using the photometric parallax method we estimate the distances to ~48 million stars detected by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and map their three-dimensional number density distribution in theExpand

The Pan-STARRS1 Surveys
Pan-STARRS1 has carried out a set of distinct synoptic imaging sky surveys including the $3\pi$ Steradian Survey and the Medium Deep Survey in 5 bands ($grizy_{P1}$). The mean 5$\sigma$ point sourceExpand

A Three-dimensional Map of Milky Way Dust
We present a three-dimensional map of interstellar dust reddening, covering three-quarters of the sky out to a distance of several kiloparsecs, based on Pan-STARRS 1 (PS1) and 2MASS photometry. TheExpand

THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL POWER SPECTRUM OF GALAXIES FROM THE SLOAN DIGITAL SKY SURVEY
We measure the large-scale real-space power spectrum P(k) by using a sample of 205,443 galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, covering 2417 effective square degrees with mean redshift z ≈ 0.1.Expand

Early-Type Galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. III. The Fundamental Plane
A magnitude-limited sample of nearly 9000 early-type galaxies in the redshift range 0.01 ≤ z ≤ 0.3 was selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) using morphological and spectral criteria. TheExpand

Early-type Galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. II. Correlations between Observables
A magnitude-limited sample of nearly 9000 early-type galaxies, in the redshift range 0.01 ≤ z ≤ 0.3, was selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey using morphological and spectral criteria. TheExpand

Extrapolation of Galactic Dust Emission at 100 Microns to Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation Frequencies Using FIRAS
We present predicted full-sky maps of submillimeter and microwave emission from the diffuse interstellar dust in the Galaxy. These maps are extrapolated from the 100 μm emission and 100/240 μm fluxExpand

GIANT GAMMA-RAY BUBBLES FROM FERMI-LAT: ACTIVE GALACTIC NUCLEUS ACTIVITY OR BIPOLAR GALACTIC WIND?
Data from the Fermi-LAT reveal two large gamma-ray bubbles, extending 50° above and below the Galactic center (GC), with a width of about 40° in longitude. The gamma-ray emission associated withExpand
