Abstract: The Infrared Space Observatory (ISO), launched by ESA in November 1995, ende d its operations successfully in April 1998. The subsequent post-operational phase, which will last for 3.5 years, is devoted mainly to re-analysis and re-calibration of the data. The ISOPHOT Interactive Analysis (PIA) is not only the main calibration tool but also the software tool of choice for the scientific analysis of data obtained with the imaging spectrophotopolarimeter ISOPHOT. Some of the main PIA enhancements related to mapping are presented in this paper, namely, the development of new algorithms for the creation of ISOPHOT maps as well as a sub-package for beam profile deconvolution.
