b-) Comparison running the model Drimmel et al. (2003) on a local machine and using GALExtin for a list of 2,000 directions (l,b,distance).

- Marshall et al. (2006):

We did a query using Vizier-CDS for Galactic longitudes for l = 5.0, 35.0, 65.0, 95.0, 265.0, 295.0, 325.0, 355.0 (Catalog: J/A+A/453/635/table1). File obtained.

This file contains data for |b| <= 10 degrees. All distances (d) are avalaible for each l.o.s.

From this file, we made a catalog with 7,190 points with only l,b,d,A_Ks. GALExtin results for these directions.

- Chen et al. (2013):

We did a query using Vizier-CDS for Galactic longitudes l = 0.0,4.0,8.0,10.0,356.0,352.0,350.0. (Catalog: J/A+A/550/A42/table1). File obtained.

This file contains data for |b| <= 10 degrees. All distances (d) are avalaible for each l.o.s.

From this file, we made a catalog with 790 points with only l,b,d,E(J-Ks),E(H-Ks). Negative values mean no data. GALExtin results for these directions.

- Planck (2014): E(B-V):

List with 2,000 pairs of (l,b) randomly distributed over All-Sky.

Files containing E(B-V) using GALExtin and from dustmaps.

- Sale et al. (2014): Two comparisons:

a-) List with 1,050 points obtained from CDS-Vizier distributed from 30 to 210 degrees for |b| < 5.0 degrees, for three ranges of distances.

b-) List with 5,508 points were obtained randomically directly from Amap.dat. for 612 pairs of (l,b) containging each one A_0 estimates for 9 distances (from 0.05 to 14.95 kpc).

- Chen et al. (2014):

List with 5,310 points for 177 pairs of (l,b) containging each one A_r estimates for 30 distances (from 0.15 to 4.35 kpc).

Figure shows the distribution of those fields (red circles and blue crosses), in which yellow represents all points of the table.

For Galactic longitudes ranging from 0.0 to 355.0 (steps of 20.0 degrees) and Galactic latitudes from -85 to +85 degrees (steps of 10.0 degrees).

Important: Line 368 was discarded since it contains a negative value of NHI column density.
