We could not have compiled this collection without the generosity of dozens of HI observers within the community. Many of these contributions came as part of the general conference, although others who were unable to attend also contributed. We would like to offer our sincere thanks to these people for making this gallery possible, and implore the reader to properly reference the original work. Specifically, this atlas has greatly benefited from the specific contributions by Tyler Nordgren, Marc Verheijen, Jim Higdon, Rob Swaters, Caroline Simpson and collaborators, Jeremy Lim, D.J. Pisano, Marcel Clemens, Carole Mundell, Salman Hameed, Eric Wilcots, Liese van Zee, Pierre-Alain Duc, Dave Hogg, Judith Irwin, Michele Kaufman, Bev Smith, Veera Boonyasait, Elias Brinks, Vassilis Charmandaris, Jayanne English, Deidre Hunter, Linda Sparke, Andrea Cox, Lourdes Verdes-Montenegro, Min Yun, Phil Appleton, Jim Condon, Michiel Kregel, Glen Langston, Tom Oosterloo, Oak-Kyoung Park, Mary Putman, Rich Rand, Arnold Rots, Sue Simkin, Lister Staveley-Smith, Athanasios Taramopoulos, Helen Thomas, Wei-Hao Wang, and Barbara Williams. We also thank Garrett Bauer and Karen Yeh for adding the FOVs to the image captions.
The VLA is a facility of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, which is operated by Associated Universities Inc under cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation.
The Digitized Sky Surveys were produced at the Space Telescope Science Institute under U.S. Government grant NAG W-2166. The images of these surveys are based on photographic data obtained using the Oschin Schmidt Telescope on Palomar Mountain and the UK Schmidt Telescope. The Oschin Schmidt Telescope is operated by the California Institute of Technology and Palomar Observatory. The UK Schmidt Telescope was operated by the Royal Observatory Edinburgh, with funding from the UK Science and Engineering Research Council (later the UK Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council), until 1988 June, and thereafter by the Anglo-Australian Observatory. The plates were processed into the present compressed digital form with the permission of these institutions.
The National Geographic Society - Palomar Observatory Sky Atlas was made by the California Institute of Technology with grants from the National Geographic Society. The Second Palomar Observatory Sky Survey was made by the California Institute of Technology with funds from the National Science Foundation, the National Geographic Society, the Sloan Foundation, the Samuel Oschin Foundation, and the Eastman Kodak Corporation.
This research has made extensive use of the NASA Extragalactic Database (NED) which is operated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
