Abstract: We made large-scale observations of the far-infrared C II line using a balloon-borne telescope BICE. Our observations covered wide areas (total ~1000 2 degrees) with a moderate resolution (15''), and are complimentary with ISO/LWS observations, which have a better spatial resolution but smaller spatial coverage. We observed various regions: the Galactic plane (260^\circ less than or equal to l less than or equal to 60^\circ, |b| less than or equal to 3^\circ), star-forming regions (Cyg-X region, Orion region, and rho-Ophiuchi dark cloud), and the Large Magellanic Cloud. Main results are briefly reviewed.
