Descriptions
Abstract: Vista Variables in the Via Lactea (VVV) is a public IR variability survey of the Milky Way bulge and an adjacent section of the mid-plane where star formation activity is high. It performed wide FOV multi-epoch observations of the Galaxy’s bulge and part of the disk, providing the astronomical public community with a high resolution 3-D (or 4-D if you include the time dimension) map of the bulge.
Other: This is a dynamic dataset; it is growing as new data is added. The DOI refers to the newest available dataset.
