Be aware that for small size SPIRE maps, smaller than ~30 arcmin, the zero-offset can be rather uncertain, due to the large Planck beam (8 arcmin). In such cases the interpretation of the zero offset as the absolute zero level must to be treated with caution.
 
<-- Herschel-SPIRE detectors are only sensitive to relative variations, and so as a consequence, the absolute brightness of the observed region is unknown and maps are constructed such that they have zero median. The Planck-HFI detectors are similar to the SPIRE ones, but the Planck observing strategy allowed it to (almost) observe a great circle on the sky every minute (having a 1 rpm spinning rate). By comparing the sky brightness as measured by COBE-FIRAS at the galactic poles (where the dust emission is lower), HFI is capable of setting an absolute offset to its maps. SPIRE and HFI share two channels with overlapping wavebands: SPIRE-PMW and HFI-857 have a similar filter profile, while SPIRE-PLW and HFI-545 are shifted by ~10%.

  • Photometry on single direction fast scan parallel mode maps: The photometry on single scan direction fast parallel mode results in higher photometric errors of up to 5 percent for aperture photometry compared to nominal speed and cross linked maps. The best results are obtained using the Timeline Fitter. Wherever possible orthogonal and nominal direction parallel scans should be merged.

  • Between HIPE11 and HIPE12 default size of the PRF used by SUSSEXtractor was changes from a 5x5 PRF to a 13x13 PRF to allow a more complete coverage of the PRF edges. Note that this change has an effect on the resulting flux densities measured by SUSSEXtractor with the HIPE 12 results being systematically higher by about 10 % compared to Timeline Fitter. Caution is advised using SUSSEXtractor with HIPE12. The original HIPE11 results can be replicated by this script

  • In HIPE13 (and HIPE 11), the default PRF used by SUSSEXtractor has a size of 5x5 pixels. In HIPE 12, a PRF of size 13x13 was used to allow a more complete coverage of the PRF edges, but this lead to some secondary effects that negatively affected the measured flux densities. If you use HIPE v12 we advise you to change the input PRF size using this script, in order to obtain the same photometry as in HIPE v13.
