The Galactic Legacy Infrared Mid‐Plane Survey Extraordinaire (GLIMPSE), a Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF) Legacy Science Program, will be a fully sampled, confusion‐limited infrared survey of 2/3 of the inner Galactic disk with a pixel resolution of ∼1.″2 using the Infrared Array Camera at 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, and 8.0 μm. The survey will cover Galactic latitudes |b|≤1° and longitudes |l| = 10°–65° (both sides of the Galactic center). The survey area contains the outer ends of the Galactic… 
First GLIMPSE Results on the Stellar Structure of the Galaxy
The GLIMPSE (Galactic Legacy Mid-Plane Survey Extraordinaire) Point Source Catalog of ~30 million mid-infrared sources toward the inner Galaxy, 10° ≤ |l| ≤ 65° and |b| ≤ 1°, was used to determine the
THE RADIO CONTENT OF GLIMPSE
