Abstract
Based on 17 months of data from the DArk Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE), we are able to produce a GeV gamma-ray sky map showcasing the powerful e/$\gamma$ (e/p) discrimination and good angular resolution of DAMPE. Bright gamma-ray point sources of various kinds are identified in the map. We discuss the potential implementation of DAMPE's photon observation in both calibration and science, including boresight alignment, transient sources monitoring, and study of variable sources. Comparison between our result and that of the Fermi is also presented.
