Data access through your web browser

VGPS HI spectral line cubes can be downloaded from the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre (CADC). VGPS data at the CADC website.

VGPS continuum images

4 Feb 2009: added missing projection information to fits header of continuum images. All images are CAR projection.
The VGPS continuum mosaics can be downloaded by using the "Save Link As" feature of your web browser on the links below.
Some of these images contain areas not covered with the VLA. These can be recognized by the lack of small-scale structure.
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 17o
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 21o
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 25o
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 29o
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 33o
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 37o
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 41o
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 45o
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 49o
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 53o
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 57o
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 61o
VGPS continuum mosaic (FITS) centered at longitude 65o
