P4.6 Completeness Mapping of All-WISE Point Sources

Carl Grillmair (California Institute of Technology)

We map the completeness of point sources in the All-WISE catalog. Using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey as a truth table, we examine the completeness of point sources in Bands 1 and 2 as a function of color, coverage, surface density, and background level. The primary goal of this characterization is to search for Galactic streams and substructures, though it will be useful for any investigations that require a quantitative understanding of population sampling.
