Abstract: In this contribution we present IRIS, a new generation of IRAS images at 12, 25, 60 and 100 μm. IRIS benefits from a better destriping, it keeps the full ISSA resolution, it includes well calibrated point sources and the diffuse emission calibration at scales smaller than 1 was corrected for the variation of the IRAS detector responsivity with scale and brightness. At 100 μm the IRIS product is also a significant improvement from the Schlegel et al. (1998) maps. The uncertainty on the IRIS calibration and zero level are dominated by the uncertainties on the DIRBE calibration and on the zodiacal light model.
