Virtual Observatories and Archival Data

For many of my science purposes, archival data are already available. The main archival data sets I am using are the following:

  • PLANCK
  • HERSCHEL
  • 2MASS images to get spatially resolved near infrared photometry of nearby galaxies and the catalogue of extended sources 2MASX for global photometry
  • WISE to get near to mid infrared photometry of nearby galaxies
  • DES to get get optical photometry of nearby galaxies
  • GALEX to get get ultraviolet photometry of nearby galaxies
