Abstract: We have applied a correction to the background of the all-sky color excess maps of E(J–H) and E(H–KS) as well as extinction maps of AJ, AH, and AKS derived by Dobashi (2011) utilizing the 2 Micron All Sky Survey Point Source Catalog (2MASS PSC). The correction was made using a simulated star catalog produced based on the Besançon Galaxy Model (Robin et al. 2003; Marshall et al. 2006; Reylé et al. 2009; Robin et al. 2012). The method of the correction is fully described in our forthcoming paper (Dobashi et al. 2013), and the new color excess and extinction maps corrected for the background are open to the public at our website.
