spatial plane, single missing pixels are filled by linear interpolation, first in l direction, then b.

Comments

This is a high-quality survey of the Galactic center region carried out from Chile, where the center passed almost directly overhead. Users are cautioned of the coarser (1/4°) sampling at |b| > 1°; the interpolated cube is easier to use for most purposes.
