Here, we present new observations of ESO184-G82, the galaxy hosting the archetype of the γ-ray burst/supernova connection, GRB 980425/SN 1998bw, obtained with the integral field spectrograph MUSE mounted at the Very Large Telescope. These observations have yielded detailed maps of emission-line strength for various nebular lines along with physical parameters such as dust extinction, stellar age, and oxygen abundance on spatial scales of 160pc. The immediate environment of GRB 980425 is young 5-8Myr) and consistent with a mildly extinguished (AV∼0.1mag) progenitor of zero-age main-sequence mass between 25 M and 40 M and an oxygen abundance 12+log(O=H)∼8.2 (Z∼0.3Z), which is slightly lower than that of an integrated measurement of the whole galaxy (12+log(O=H)∼8.3) and a prominent nearby HII region (12+log(O/H)∼8.4). This region is significantly younger than the explosion site, and we argue that a scenario in which the GRB progenitor formed in this environment and was subsequently ejected appears very unlikely. We show that empirical strong-line methods based on [O iii] and/or [N ii] are inadequate to produce accurate maps of oxygen abundance at the level of detail of our MUSE observation as these methods strongly depend on the ionization state of the gas. The metallicity gradient in ESO184-G82 is -0.06dex/kpc, indicating that the typical offsets of at most few kpc for cosmological GRBs on average have a small impact on oxygen abundance measurements at higher redshift. Description: The ESO184-G82 data cube (SN1998bwastphotcube.fits) is a multi-dimensional fits file with a primary header and two extensions: The primary header contains only the fits headers. The first fits extension (DATA) contains the observed flux values in units of 10-20erg/cm^2/s/Å. The dimensions of the cube are 320x324x3682 where the first two are celestial coordinates (RA, DEC), and the last one the wavelength coordinate. The second fits extension (STAT) contains the estimated variance in units of 10-40erg-2cm-4s-2Å-2 Objects: ------------------------------------------------- RA (2000) DE Designation(s) ------------------------------------------------- 19 35 03.17 -52 50 46.1 SN1998bw = GRB 980425 ------------------------------------------------- File Summary:
