Spectral image cube of atomic hydrogen emission in the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy. The dimensions of the cube are 3424x1824 pixels x 222 channels, or approximately 5.5GB.

GALFACTS polarization set from the Arecibo radio telescope - three data cubes each 5314x1074 pixels x 3000 frequency channels. Each cube, about 70 GB in size, shows the spectral behaviour of one of three polarization states of the cosmic radiation.  The entire set is about 210GB.  Visualization tools allow simultaneous visualization and analytics of the polarized properties of the radiation.

A smaller polarization set from the Very Large Array. Each of the three cubes has dimensions 2048x2048 pixes x 110 channels. The total size of the data set is about 5.5GB.
