Abstract Based on the 3.6 and 4.5 micron images from the Spitzer GLIMPSE360 survey, combined with the WISE 12 micron image, we identified a sample of star formation regions in the outer Galaxy. We study their correlation with the CO clouds from "The Outer Galaxy Molecular Cloud Catalog" (Brunt et al. 2003; based on the FCRAO survey), as well as with known H II regions and masers. We investigate the CO and mid-IR properties as a function of distance and the association with various dynamical features in the Galaxy.
