Our data yield a scale on the sky of 0."33 per fiber and cover a FoV of 13" x13" .In Figure 2, we show the g-band acquisition image of the XMP BCD galaxy HS2236+1344, in which we indicated the total field of view of 4" x 8" and the H[alpha] map of the galaxy obtained from the composition of two different pointings with GMOS-IFU.
In [33, 54], we studied with GMOSIFU the spatial distribution of He II [lambda]4686 in the compact H II galaxies Tol 0104-388 and Tol 2146-391 and in the XMP BCD galaxy HS2236+1344, respectively, in order to gain insights into the nature of their hard ionization radiation and its possible dependence on the properties of the ISM [64,66].
In the case of the XMP BCD galaxy HS2236+1344, we detected the He II [lambda]4686 emission line in only one of the GH IIRs of the galaxy (the brightest one).
