Descriptions
Abstract: The ATLAS survey is particularly aimed at survey cosmology but can be exploited for many other branches of extragalactic and Galactic astron- omy. Its wide wavelength coverage from the u to the z bands complements the VISTA Hemisphere and VIKING Surveys in the YJHK bands. A full description of the ATLAS survey is given by Shanks et al (2015, MNRAS, 451, 4238). The passbands covered are the SDSS u,g,r,i,z bands reaching ap- proximately the same depth (r~22.5) as the SDSS survey in the Northern Hemisphere. Median FWHM seeing ranges from 0.8arcsec in i,z to 1.1arcsec in u.
Other: This is a dynamic dataset; it is growing as new data is added. The DOI refers to the newest available dataset.
