Published: 03 Sep 2013

Data products resulting from the first release of the ESO/VST Public Survey VPHAS+ are now available via the dedicated Phase 3 query interface at the ESO Science Archive Facility.

This data release covers the first 9 months of data-taking in which a tenth of the survey footprint was observed to desired quality. These first pointings have favoured the Galactic equator and some well-known open clusters of interest to the Gaia-ESO Survey. Reduced images and unstacked single-band source lists are provided. The total data volume of this data release is 749 GB.

The VPHAS+ public survey data release is accompanied by a comprehensive description.
