zCOSMOS Advanced Data Products migrated to the Phase 3 infrastructure

Published: 21 Mar 2014

The zCOSMOS-bright advanced data products are now available via the query forms for Science Data Products of the ESO Archive. The zCOSMOS data were migrated to be compliant to the ESO standard regarding format and header keywords requirements, and ingested in the ESO Science Archive Facility via the Phase 3 infrastructure.

This migration enhanced the value of these products by adding useful information in the headers of the files. Furthermore, the associated zCOSMOS-bright catalogue has also become accessible via the Catalog facility query interface.

Part of the migration was devoted to recover the processing provenance and the association with the raw data which was successful for 97% of the migrated files. More details about the zCOSMOS release can be found in the associated Phase 3 release description.
