3D Stellar Cartography: Mapping the Local Group in the Mid-Infrared using Variable Stars

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In this review I discuss the past, present, and future Stellar Cartography programs performed as part of the Warm Spitzer mission (the Carnegie Hubble Program, the Carnegie RR Lyrae Program, and SMHASH), and how the field will progress in the next decade with JWST. I discuss the advantages of performing variable star studies in the mid-infrared, and explain why we must treat galaxies as 3D objects if we want a truly accurate and precise distance scale.
