  As of HCSS 11, a new task named zeroPointCorrection is available to the users: this task calculates the absolute offset for a SPIRE map based on cross-calibration with HFI-545 and HFI-857 maps, colour-correcting HFI to SPIRE wavebands assuming a grey body function with fixed beta. To run the task, you will need to download the 2 Planck maps HFI-545 and HFI-857 maps from the HSC/SPIRE FTP area as they are not included in the HIPE distribution. These maps are derived from the ones available in the Planck Legacy Archive, but convolved with an 8 arcmin Gaussian beam in order to circularize the effective map beams, plus the maps absolute offset as estimated by the Planck-HFI team via cross-calibration with FIRAS (see Planck Collaboration VIII. 2013, In preparation)

The offsets are computed on extdPxW maps, calibrated for extended emission, with extended gain correction applied and in units of MJy/sr (as explained in the section 5.7 of the SPIRE Data Reduction Guide). Hence, the re-processing will start from a level-1 context (which may be the result of merging multiple observations, see e.g. the Photometry Map Merging scirpt available in HIPE under the menu ScriptsSPIRE Useful script) and then executing the zeroPointCorrection task with one of the following methods:

  1. Run the zeroPointCorr_HIPE11.py script. It assumes that the observation has been reduced with HIPE 11 or later versions. It also sets the location of the two Planck maps by the zeroPointCorrection task: please modify the PATH_TO_FILE accordingly to your set-up.
  2. Alternatively, run the correction using the SPIA interface (SPIRE Photometer Interactive Analysis). In order to be able to run the zeroPointCorrection task, the user.props file present (by default) in you $HOME/.hcss directory must be modified and the following lines added (please modify the PATH_TO_FILE accordingly to your set-up):
    • spire.spg.hfi.545map = PATH_TO_FILE/DX9_map_545_smooth_8arcmin.fits
