Abstract

We provide an overview of ancillary 24-, 70- and 160-μm data from the Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS) that are intended to complement the 70–500 μm Herschel Space Observatory photometry data for nearby galaxies obtained by the Herschel-SPIRE Local Galaxies Guaranteed Time Programs and the Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey. The MIPS data can be used to extend the photometry to wavebands that are not observed in these Herschel surveys and to check the photometry in cases where Herschel performs observations at the same wavelengths. Additionally, we measured globally integrated 24–160 μm flux densities for the galaxies in the sample that can be used for the construction of spectral energy distributions. Using MIPS photometry published by other references, we have confirmed that we are obtaining accurate photometry for these galaxies.
