The Groningen Exportable Infrared Survey High-resolution Analysis (GEISHA) system consists of a collection of software tools which allow an astronomer to create infrared sky maps from raw IRAS data. The Infra Red Astronomical Satellite (IRAS) observed about 95% of the sky by a semi-overlapping scan technique. There are 62 detectors in the focal plane in 4 wavelength bands at 12, 25, 60 and 100 μm. (See IRAS Explanatory Supplement, 1985, IRAS-ES hereafter).
