DR7 Release - February 25th 2010 (GPS added, September 10th 2010)

Important note:

DR7 does not currently contain UDS detection/source data.

Please see UKIDSSDR5PLUS for UDS data.

The charts linked below show the status of the UKIDSS surveys in this release. This 7th release, like the DR6plus release, only contains one database, UKIDSSDR7plus, which contains all the data, i.e. includes data from fields that have incomplete waveband coverage as prescribed by a given survey. The WSA DR7plus release contains views of the survey source tables that allow users to easily target their queries at only those areas that have complete waveband coverage. The names of the source table views are lasYJHKsource, gpsJHKsource, gcsZYJHKsource and dxsJKsource. These names reflect the required waveband coverage. They appear in the schema browser under both the table and view sections. The UDS being only one field that now has coverage in J, H and K does not require a view.

A description of the data and how it is held in the archive is given in the data overview.

New in DR7:

  • A photometric calibration warning has been added in DR7 to GPS sources in a small fraction of fields, see Known Issues. This calibration issue affects the same fields in earlier data releases.
  • SDSS Stripe 82 data has been added as an external database and neighbour tables created for LAS and DXS
Particular attention should be given to any notes detailing limitations and known issues - see below, known issues and data overview.
