Context. The general properties (e.g., activity class, star formation rates, metallicities, extinctions, average ages, etc.) of luminous (LIRGs) and ultraluminous infrared galaxies (ULIRGs) in the local universe are well known because large samples of these objects have been the subject of numerous spectroscopic works over the past three decades. There are, however, relatively few studies of the spatially-resolved spectroscopic properties of large samples of LIRGs and ULIRGs using integral… Expand
