Caption: Figure 7.

Spatial distribution of GMA ﹩{M}_{{\rm{c}}}﹩ and observed radius defined in the 12 m observations. Green diamonds, blue circles, and red squares in the figure denote GMAs with Mc < 5 × 106 ﹩{M}_{\odot }﹩, 5 × 106 < Mc < 107 ﹩{M}_{\odot }﹩, and Mc > 107 ﹩{M}_{\odot }﹩, respectively. The circles indicate the average radius of the major and minor axes of the observed GMA boundary. The grayscale shows the integrated intensity map of the 12 m observations.
