The Bolocam Galactic Plane Survey (BGPS) is a 1.1 mm survey of dust emission covering -10° <= l <= 90° and |b|<= 0.5°. Version 2 also includes additional coverage of 20 deg^2 in the 3rd and 4th quadrants. The effective angular resolution of the survey is 33”. Additional spectral line follow-up observations towards dense clouds in the survey were also carried out using the Heinrich Hertz Submillimeter Telescope. The 3-2 transition of HCO+ and N2H+ were targeted, with an effective velocity resolution of ~1 km/s. The link to the homepage of the BGPS survey can be found here.

This dataset consists of 1.1 mm dust continuum observations with an effective resolution of 33". It covers 192 sq. degree of the Galactic plane, mainly towards the first quadrant, though there is approximately 20 sq. deg of observations taken in the 3rd and 4th quadrants (detaile...

Erik Rosolowsky, 2016, "BGPS Catalogs: Source-Based Lists",, Harvard Dataverse, V1
This dataset consists of 8000+ compact sources extracted from the BGPS extended continuum 1.1 mm observations. The sources were obtained using a custom extraction algorithm called "Bolocat", which is tailored to the BGPS maps. According to Rosolowsky et al. 2010, these sources ar...

Yancy Shirley, 2016, "BGPS Catalogs: Spectral Line",, Harvard Dataverse, V1
This dataset consists of spectroscopic follow-up observations towards dense BGPS molecular clumps derived from the 1.1 mm dust continuum survey. Observations were obtained using the Heinrich Hertz Telescope simultaneously in HCO+ (J = 3-2) and N2H+ (J = 3-2). In total, over 6000...
