The Infrared Space Observatory AOT P32 is a dedicated mapping mode combining the raster capability of ISO with the chopping capability of the ISOPHOT instrument for obtaining images in the far infrared, maximising the spatial resolution. We present diffraction limited maps of the Crab Nebula at 60 and 100 microns, as an illustration of a new tool for the P32 data analysis, integrated within the ISOPHOT Interactive Analysis (PIA).
