XMM-XXL Background Maps

For details on the processing and availability of the X-ray data, see XXL paper I


The XXL background maps in the [0.5-2 keV] band. All detected X-ray sources have been masked and individual images have been divided by their respective exposure maps. Pointings having a background level higher than 8 ct/s/arcmin2 are indicated by a black cross; these observations are below the XXL science acceptance threshold
