Abstract: We have mapped approximately 150 square degrees of the Galactic Plane at 1.1mm with Bolocam on the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory. The survey coverage includes the Galactic Center, most of the molecular ring, and many active star-forming regions such as Cygnus X and the W3/4/5 region. This is the first unbiased survey of emission from cold dust associated with massive star and cluster formation.
