First data release from the Galaxy Clusters At Vircam (GCAV) ESO VISTA Public Survey
Galaxy Clusters At Vircam (GCAV) is a survey belonging to the second cycle of ESO VISTA Public Surveys. It is aimed at observing 20 clusters of galaxies covering in total ~30 deg2 in the infrared Y, J, and Ks bands. It will mainly explore galaxy evolution over a large, and largely unexplored, diversity of cluster environments. The DR1 release concerns 9 clusters and contains tile images and related source lists from data collected over the period from October 2016 to the end of September 2017. For two clusters, RXCJ1514.9-1523 and RXCJ2129.6+0005 with complete observations during periods P98 and P99, deep stacks in Y, J and Ks filters are also released, as well as merged catalogues containing aperture matched photometry in the filter bands of the deep stacks.
