Archive Science Group 1 year ago 0

The  fourth data release of the VST Photometric Hα Survey of the Southern Galactic Plane and Bulge (VPHAS+, PI J. E. Drew) includes reduced images and their related source lists taken in the time interval from November 2015 to August 2018, when the survey terminated. By releasing this additional three years of observations, DR4 adds almost 4TB of data to the VPHAS+ collection, effectively doubling the sky area coverage. In total, approximately 2080 deg2 are now covered in all survey filters, which is 92% of the originally planned survey footprint.

Data can be browsed and downloaded from the ESO Science Portal or programmatically.
