GaBoDS/WFI data release: Version 1.1

Published: 19 Mar 2008

As part of the ESO Deep Public Survey (DPS), optical imaging observations were carried out in U, B, V, R, I bands, using the Wide Field Imager (WFI) instrument mounted at the 2.2m telescope at La Silla, Chile. This survey consisted of three square degrees in three well-separated regions (Deep1, Deep2 and Deep3) split into 4 adjacent WFI pointings (named a, b, c, d). The Garching-Bonn Deep Survey (GaBoDS) combines the data from this survey with data from most other ESO programmes that coincide with the original DPS regions, up until December 2006.
Compared to the original release from 13 April 2006, there are 5 more images plus associated weight maps. the new images include a U/38 image of the field Deep2c and U/50 and B/123 images in the Deep1c field. Additionally, V/89 and I/203 images of the Deep1c field now include more data resulting in increased depth.
The properties of 63 of the 68 images are described in detail in Hildebrandt et al. 2006, A&A, 452, 1121 and more information can be found at
