WELCOME TO THE
ESO ARCHIVE COMMUNITY FORUM
The ESO Archive Community Forum is a platform for sharing ideas and methods, asking questions and sending feedback and suggestions on how to improve and use the new ESO Archive Science Portal and on how to gain Programmatic and tool access to the archive science portal.
Contributions are welcome from the users, also without any need for registration, they are pre-approved, monitored and moderated by the ESO Archive Science Group (ASG).
If you wish to contribute to the knowledge exchange, please choose a Forum from the right panel or from the drop-down menu on the top of this page and write a message. An agent will receive it and make it public as soon as possible.
Please be aware that the official help concerning data access, data reduction and pipelines is provided by the ESO User Support Department.
Please observe the usual basic netiquette rule of remain professional, respectful, and courteous at all times.
The UVES SQUAD DR1 comprises fully reduced, continuum-fitted high-resolution spectra of quasars with redshifts z = 0–5, with the primary goal of enabling statistical studies of large quasar and absorber samples at high resolution. DR1 includes 467 quasar spectra from the Ultraviolet and Visual Echelle Spectrograph (UVES) on the ESO-VLT. These quasars have at least one exposure in the ESO UVES archive (longer than 100 sec) that was observed before 30th June 2008. All exposures longer than 100 sec observed before 17th November 2016 for these quasars were then included in the final, combined spectra in DR1. In total, 3088 exposures were selected and successfully processed, with a total exposure time of 10 million seconds (2803 hrs; an average of 5.9 hrs per quasar).
The fourth release of the ultra-deep near-infrared survey of the central region of the COSMOS field is now publicly available from the ESO Archive Science Portal or the Programmatic Access service.
This fourth UltraVISTA data release, based on observations carried out from 4 December 2009 to 29 June 2016, comprises stacked images in YJHKs and NB118 narrow-band filters, as well as single-band and dual-mode source lists. The data release also contains a five-band merged catalogue, created from the individual Ks-selected source lists. The total exposure time contributing to this release is 1287.5 hours, and the total survey area is close to 1.9 sq.deg.
More details about the release content can be found in the associated Phase 3data release description.
New data from the Kilo-Degree Survey
The fourth data release covers 1107 square-degrees and more than doubles the sky area covered by the previous three releases combined. For the first time, it includes photometry from the partner VIKING ESO public imaging survey on VISTA. For each of the 1006 square-degree survey tiles the data release includes calibrated stacked images in u,g,r and i filters, their corresponding weights and masks, and single-band source lists extracted from the stacks. Furthermore, the multi-band ugriZYJHKs photometric catalogue covers 1006 square degree survey tiles, with PSF-homogenised and aperture-matched photometry and photometric redshift estimates.
More details about the release content can be found in the associated Phase 3 data release description.
The products are available via the ESO Archive Science Portal or the Programmatic Access service.
The catalogue records can be queried programmatically or via the dedicated Catalog Interface.
VISIONS is a sub-arcsec NIR atlas of the nearby (d < 500 pc) star forming complexes accessible from the southern hemisphere. The atlas will contain tens of thousands of young starts (0.1 to 10 Myr), will be sensitive to objects down to few Jupiter masses and reach spatial resolutions of 100-250 AU.
This first release includes excellent quality J, H and Ks band observations of the dense field of the Ophiuchus star-forming region. More details about the release content can be found in the accompanying Phase 3 data release documentation.
We are happy to announce that all VIMOS imaging science observations from 2003 until the end of VIMOS operations in March 2018 have now been processed by ESO and are added to the previous VIMOS imaging data release.
The science products are published via the ESO Science Portal and they can also be downloaded via programmatic access.
More details about data processing, the content of the source lists, data quality, astrometric and photometric calibrations are available in the associated Phase 3 data release description.
Dear ESO users,
we are happy to announce that the first data release of the Galaxy Clusters At Vircam (GCAV) Survey is now public.
GCAV DR1 contains tile images and related source lists from data on 9 clusters of galaxies, collected over the period from October 2016 to the end of September 2017.
Data files and sky coverage can be discovered via the Science Portal here.
More information can be found in the accompanying release documentation.
We are happy to announce that the ESO APEX science operations team have now started the processing
of public APEX archival data using standard calibrations.
This initial release by the APEX team consists of a flux map from the LABOCA observations of the Boomerang Nebula. These observations were taken under the ESO programme 092.F-9305(A), during the second half of 2013. The planetary nebula shows a unique high speed wind and mass expansion features, resulting into temperatures that are even colder than the CMB radiation. The released flux map at 870 um provides the opportunity to study the dust around the envelope and the grain size distribution of this planetary nebula. The data are combined and calibrated via a standard process using the BoA software for bolometer data reduction.
We are delighted to announce that the first data release of The Next Generation Transit Survey (NGTS) is now available.
It includes 24 separate fields that have been completed during the first year of observations (April 2016 to April 2017).
A catalogue of the observed sources down to 16th magnitude is provided, together with the light curves obtained with aperture photometry in addition to the reduced, astrometrically calibrated, stacked dithered images.
The release documentation provides more information.
The scientific data obtained with PIONIER over period P100 and P101 are now available as reduced data (squared visibility amplitudes and closure phases) via the ESO Science Archive Facility. Here you can find the publication announcement and in the release description you can find more details about the data.
