A new 1.4 GHz radio continuum map of the sky for Dec < +25 degr
Calabretta, Staveley-Smith & Barnes (2014) carefully reprocessed archival data from the HI Parkes All-Sky Survey (HIPASS) and the HI Zone of Avoidance (HIZOA) survey into a new 1.4 GHz continuum map of the sky. The wide sky coverage (Dec < +25 degr), high sensitivity of 40 mK (limited by confusion), resolution of 14.4 arcmin and low level of artefacts make this map ideal for numerous studies, including: merging into interferometer maps to complete large-scale structures; decomposition of thermal and non-thermal emission components from Galactic and extragalactic sources; and comparison of emission regions with other frequencies. - The new CHIPASS 1.4 GHz radio continuum map is available for download here.
