Fig. 10


Map featuring the number of sources or the disk tiles (152 fields) in VVV with a 0.005° × 0.005° bin/pixel size. Top, map for all the sources in our combined JHKs catalogues, 136 million sources. Second row, map for all the stellar sources, 88 million stars. Third row, map for stellar sources for the objects lying in a stripe in the color−color diagram defined by (H − K) × 1.97 + 0.54 ≥ (J − H) ≥ (H − K) × 1.97 + 0.24 and (H − K) ≥ 0.4; this selection should be dominated by disk red giants with high extinction. Bottom, same as before, but for (H − K) ≤ 0.4; the population selected in this starcount map should be dominated by red-giants and some main sequence stars with low extinction.
