We present a three-dimensional extinction map in the r band. The map has a spatial angular resolution, depending on latitude, between 3 and 9 arcmin and covers the entire Xuyi Schmidt Telescope Photometric Survey of the Galactic Anticentre (XSTPS-GAC) survey area of over 6000 deg(2) for Galactic longitude 140 < l < 240 deg and latitude -60 < b < 40 deg. By cross-matching the photometric catalogue of the XSTPS-GAC with those of 2MASS and WISE, we have built a multiband photometric stellar sample… 

Galactic reddening in 3D from stellar photometry – an improved map

We present a new 3D map of interstellar dust reddening, covering three quarters of the sky (declinations of δ ≳ −30°) out to a distance of several kiloparsecs. The map is based on high-quality

Constraining the Galactic structure parameters with the XSTPS-GAC and SDSS photometric surveys

Photometric data from the Xuyi Schmidt Telescope Photometric Survey of the Galactic Anticentre (XSTPS-GAC) and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) are used to derive the global structure parameters

Three-dimensional interstellar dust reddening maps of the Galactic plane

We present new three-dimensional (3D) interstellar dust reddening maps of the Galactic plane in three colours, E(G-Ks), E(Bp-Rp) and E(H-Ks). The maps have a spatial angular resolution of 6 arcmin

We present a three dimensional (3D) extinction analysis in the region toward the supernova remnant (SNR) S147 (G180.0-1.7) using multi-band photometric data from the Xuyi Schmidt Telescope

A new catalogue of Stroemgren-Crawford uvbybeta photometry

A new all-sky catalogue of all available uvbybeta measurements from the literature was generated. The uvbybeta photometric system is widely used for the study of various Galactic and extragalactic

We investigate the correlation between extinction and H~{\sc i} and CO emission at intermediate and high Galactic latitudes ($|b|>10\degr$) within the footprint of the Xuyi Schmidt Telescope

Three-dimensional dust mapping of 12 supernovae remnants in the Galactic anticentre

We present three-dimensional (3D) dust mapping of 12 supernova remnants (SNRs) in the Galactic anticentre (Galactic longitude l between 150○ and 210○) based on a recent 3D interstellar extinction
