Montage Used in “Surveying the Agents of Galaxy Evolution”

Surveying the Agents of Galaxy Evolution (SAGE) is a project led by Margaret Meixner of STScI, and it is one of the Spitzer Space Telescope Legacy projects, considered of unusually high science value. The project uses the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) as a laboratory for investigating the evolution of the interstellar medium, as it is replenished by dying stars and then recycled in new generations of stars. SAGE has made wide use of Montage, and has used it in their latest paper “Surveying the Agents of Galaxy Evolution in the Tidally-Stripped, Low Metallicity Small Magellanic Cloud (SAGE-SMC). I. Overview.”

They used Montage to make mosaics of data at different wavelengths with the Spitzer MIPS and IRAC instruments and place them on a common pixel sampling, projection and coordinate system
