Context. The INTEGRAL observatory operating in a hard X-ray/gamma domain gathered a large observational data set over nine years since 2003. Dominant fraction of the observing time was dedicated to the Galactic source population study making the possibility of the deepest Galactic survey in hard X-rays ever compiled. Aims. The aim of the current Galactic survey is to make a basis for Galactic source population studies, and perform mapping of the Milky Way in hard X-rays over the maximum…
