Observational Coverage Maps

Figure 1a - Distribution of target fields for the 2015 (purple; northern Galactic bulge) and 2016 (blue; southern Galactic bulge) UKIRT microlensing surveys.

Figure 1b - Distribution of target fields for the 2015 (purple; northern Galactic bulge) and 2016 (blue; southern Galactic bulge) UKIRT microlensing surveys. Also included is the survey superstamp area (pink) for K2's Campaign 9 (K2C9), which can be found in the K2C9 white paper (cf. Figure 7): Henderson, C. B., et al. (2016) PASP, 128, 124401.

Figure 1c - Distribution of target fields for the 2015 (purple; northern Galactic bulge) and 2016 (blue; southern Galactic bulge) UKIRT microlensing surveys. Also included is the survey superstamp area (pink) for K2's Campaign 9 (K2C9), which can be found in the K2C9 white paper (cf. Figure 7): Henderson, C. B., et al. (2016) PASP, 128, 124401, as well as the most recent iteration of the WFIRST microlensing survey fields (gray), which can be found in the 2015 WFIRST-AFTA report (cf. Figure 2-29): Spergel, D., et al. (2015) arXiv:1503.03757.
