 SPTSZ + Planck Lensing Map 




This page provides information for the convergence map over the SPT 2500 deg^{2} footprint produced
by applying the quadratic estimator on the SPT 150GHz + Planck 143GHz combined temperature map.
The methods used to create the map are described in detail in Omori et al. 2017 (ApJ, 849, 124, ArXiv:1705.00743).
We provide:
1. Data convergence map: HEALPix alm format, equatorial coordinates.
2. Simulated convergence maps: HEALPix alm format, equatorial coordinates. 10 realizations.
3. Analysis mask: HEALPix map format, Nside=4096, ordering=RING, equatorial coordinates.
The mask removes circular regions with r = 3', 6', 9' for point sources in the flux density ranges 6 < F_{150} < 50, 50 < F_{150} < 500 and F_{150} > 500mJy respectively centred at the point sources. It also masks clusters above xi > 4.5 with an r = 5' aperture.
If you have any questions regarding this data set or its use, please contact Yuuki Omori (yomori_at_stanford_edu).
