In the External Maps section of the Planck Legacy Archive we have included a small set of maps that users frequently use in combination of Planck data.

These is the list of external maps currently available in the PLA:


WMAP K, Ka, Q, V and W bands (23, 33, 41, 61 and 94 GHz) full resolution coadded nine year sky maps in intensity and polarization.

Improved Haslam et al. 408 MHz radio continuum all-sky map desourced and destriped.

IRIS 12, 25, 60 and 100 microns full resolution infrared maps (IRIS: Improved Reprocessing of the IRAS Survey)

WISE 12 micron low-resolution (NSIDE 2048) full-sky dust map.

2013 maps of the Crab nebula at 89.189 GHz (HCO+(1-0) transition) in both temperature and polarization, prodouced from observations performed at the IRAM 30m telescope from January 9th to January 12th 2009, are delivered as a tarball of 416 KB in the file

File:Crab IRAM 2010.zip

See README in the tarball for full details. These data were used in Aumont et al. 2010 [1].
