Abstract Using twin ground-based telescopes, the Two-Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) scanned both equatorial hemispheres, detecting more than 500 million stars and resolving more than 1.5 million galaxies in the near-infrared (1–2.2 μm) bands. The Extended Source Catalog (XSC) embodies both photometric and astrometric whole sky uniformity, revealing large scale structures in the local Universe and extending our view into the Milky Way's dust-obscured ‘Zone of Avoidance’. The XSC represents a… Expand
TWO MICRON ALL SKY SURVEY PHOTOMETRIC REDSHIFT CATALOG: A COMPREHENSIVE THREE-DIMENSIONAL CENSUS OF THE WHOLE SKY
Key cosmological applications require the three-dimensional (3D) galaxy distribution on the entire celestial sphere. These include measuring the gravitational pull on the Local Group, estimating theExpand
Radio galaxies of the local universe - All-sky catalog, luminosity functions, and clustering
To understand the feedback of black holes on their environment or the acceleration of ultra-high energy cosmic rays in the present cosmic epoch, a systematic, all-sky inventory of radio galaxies inExpand
The 2MASS Redshift Survey: description and data release
We present the results of the 2MASS Redshift Survey (2MRS), a ten-year project to map the full three-dimensional distribution of galaxies in the nearby universe. The Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS)Expand
The VVV near-IR galaxy catalogue beyond the Galactic disc
Knowledge about the large-scale distribution of galaxies is far from complete in the Zone of Avoidance, which is mostly due to high interstellar extinction and to source confusion at lower GalacticExpand
WISE × SuperCOSMOS PHOTOMETRIC REDSHIFT CATALOG: 20 MILLION GALAXIES OVER 3π STERADIANS
We cross-match the two currently largest all-sky photometric catalogs—mid-infrared Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer and SuperCOSMOS scans of UKST/POSS-II photographic plates—to obtain a new galaxyExpand
Cosmology with all-sky surveys
Various aspects of cosmology require comprehensive all-sky mapping of the cosmic web to considerable depths. In order to probe the whole extragalactic sky beyond 100 Mpc, one must draw onExpand
Large-scale variations of the dust optical properties in the Galaxy
We present an analysis of the dust optical properties at large scale, for the whole galactic anticenter hemisphere. We used the 2MASS Extended Source Catalog to obtain the total reddening on eachExpand
Galaxy and Mass Assembly (GAMA): Exploring the WISE Web in G12
We present an analysis of the mid-infrared WISE sources seen within the equatorial GAMA G12 field, located in the North Galactic Cap. Our motivation is to study and characterize the behavior of WISEExpand
DISCOVERY OF HIGHLY OBSCURED GALAXIES IN THE ZONE OF AVOIDANCE
We report the discovery of 25 previously unknown galaxies in the zone of avoidance (ZoA). Our systematic search for extended extragalactic sources in the Galactic Legacy Infrared Mid-Plane SurveyExpand
Tomographic imaging of the Fermi-LAT gamma-ray sky through cross-correlations: A wider and deeper look
We investigate the nature of the extragalactic unresolved gamma-ray background (UGRB) by cross-correlating several galaxy catalogs with sky-maps of the UGRB built from 78 months of Pass 8 Fermi-LargeExpand
