3D tomography of local interstellar gas and dust

Abstract : Interstellar absorption data and Strömgren photometric data for target stars possessing a Hipparcos parallax have been combined to build a 3D tomography of local gas and dust. We show the latest inverted 3D distributions within 250 pc, compare gas and dust maps and discuss the present limitations and work in progress. Gaia extinction data and follow-up ground-based stellar spectra (e.g. with GYES at the CFHT) will provide a far larger database that should allow a 3D tomography of much higher quality and extended to much larger distances.
