Distribution SODRM Programs
in Galactic Coordinates

The distribution of non-moving sources from all the SODRM programs is shown in galactic coordinates

The distribution of non-moving sources from all the SODRM programs is shown in galactic coordinates. The size of the symbol is proportional to the total exposure time per observing template on that target. The symbols are coded by science/calibration area with dark green for Exoplanets, light green for Galactic, red for Nearby Galaxies, purple for Distant Galaxies & Cosmology, and light blue for Instrument/Observatory Calibration. Solar System targets are moving targets and not shown. The large purple circles show the locations of the JWST deep field programs.
