Abstract: The three wide coverage radio surveys at 408, 1420 and 2326 MHz have been analysed in order to remove artifacts from each map by means of the tecnique applied by Schlegel, Finkbeiner, & Davis (1998) to IRAS data. A detailed analysis of systematic errors has been performed including an attempt to minimize inter-calibration effects using the combination of the three maps. Nearly-full-sky maps of spectral index and normalization factor with sub-degree resolution have been derived with a pixel by pixel fitting. The resulting distributions are representative of the Galactic diffuse synchrotron emission.
