The file contains a complete copy of the ApJ manuscript including figures. The selected areas on the Sun is marked in Figure 1.

The file hist_mod.txt gives information about updates.

The author, P. Brekke would like to get feedback on the atlas and also ask people to send future preprints/papers/reports that make use of the the atlas or results from the atlas papers. This will be useful for updating our bibliography on the use of HRTS data.
