We combine UVOT imaging in three near-ultraviolet (NUV) filters (uvw2: 1928Å; uvm2: 2246Å; uvw1: 2600Å) with ground-based optical imaging from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey to constrain the stellar populations of both galaxies. Our analysis consists of three different methods. First, we use the NUV imaging to identify UV star-forming knots and then perform spectral energy distribution (SED) modeling on the UV/optical photometry of these sources. Second, we measure surface brightness profiles of the disk of M81 in the NUV and optical. Lastly, we use SED fitting of individual pixels to map the properties of the two galaxies. Description: UVOT observations of M81 and Holmberg IX were made between 2005 April 21 and 2009 September 4. File Summary:
