THE SECOND PUBLIC DATA RELEASE (PDR-2)

This is the entry point to the second data release (PDR-2) of the VIMOS Public Extragalactic Redshift Survey (VIPERS).

The PDR-2 includes spectroscopic measurements for 91507 objects, together with the survey masks, statistical weights and photometric ancillary information from the VIPERS multi-lambda survey. 89022 of these objects are main survey targets.

Details on the data and how to use them can be found in Scodeggio et al. (submitted to A&A). General information about the survey can be found in Guzzo et al. (2014) and Garilli et al. (2014).





Use

Catalogues are provided through:

  • An easy-to-use Web interface, providing a fully queryable system, accessible at this LINK (free registration required), which allows the user to select specific objects or sub-samples and data by searching around a position, using a combination of criteria or an object list.
  • Full dataset tar files, available from this page along with the mask files characterising the survey selection function.
  • The ESO Phase-3 archive at this LINK

The following tables contain the PDR-2 spectroscopic catalogues, separately for the two VIPERS fields (W1 and W4). Catalogues are provided as gzipped files and stored in two formats: FITS binary tables and ASCII files. The columns description is shared by W1 and W4 catalogs and described in this PAGE.

The following tables contain the the parent photometric catalogues, separately for the two VIPERS field (W1 and W4). Catalogues are provided as gzipped files and stored in two formats: FITS binary tables and ASCII files. The columns description is shared by W1 and W4 catalogs and described in this PAGE.

Update (Jan 31, 2017): the info originally provided within the two photometric catalogs about the spectroscopic mask was not up to date. It has now been corrected to cover the full spectroscopic survey area.

Here you can download the complete set of PDR-2 spectra. The user can download the 1D spectra (1D) or the 1D and 2D spectra in a single tar.gz file (1D/2D). For format details see the last section (Spectra) of this PAGE.
