The VIMOS Public Extragalactic Redshift Survey (VIPERS)
is an ESO Large Program (started at the end of 2008 and completed at the end of 2015) to map in detail the spatial
distribution of normal galaxies over an unprecedented volume of the z~1
Universe. VIPERS is reaching this goal using VIMOS at the VLT to measure approximately
100,000 redshifts for galaxies with red magnitude I brighter than 22.5
over an area of 24 square degrees.
The VIPERS database gives access to multi-wavelength photometric
data, photometric and spectroscopic redshifts for all target
sources with their related spectra.
This interface allows you to access the database, once you have
logged in via the login button in the side bar. The help button
gives access to extensive help about the usage of the interface.
