  The BGPS Spectroscopic Catalog

           Figure : Positions of dense gas detections from Shirley et al. (2013) overlaid on the CO 1-0 survey of Dame et al. (2001).

      The Bolocam Galactic Plane Survey Spectroscopic Catalog is a survey of dense molecular gas toward the 6194 sources in the Bolocat v1.0.1 with galactic longitude between 7.5 and 194 degrees. This is the largest targeted survey of dense molecular gas in the Milky Way to date. Each source was observed simultaneously in the lines of HCO+ 3-2 and N2H+ 3-2 using the 10m Heinrich Hertz Submillimeter Telescope.
