DR10 Release - January 14th 2013 (GPS added January 2015)

The charts linked below show the status of the UKIDSS surveys in this release. This 10th release, like the DR9plus release, only contains one database, UKIDSSDR10plus, which contains all the data, i.e. includes data from fields that have incomplete waveband coverage as prescribed by a given survey. The WSA DR10plus 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 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 DR10:

  • UDS mosaic goes 0.5 mags deeper than previous version
  • WISE all-sky neighbour tables (previously used WISE_prelim)
  • Some DXS H-band coverage in the VIMOS 4 region
Particular attention should be given to any notes detailing limitations and known issues - see below, known issues and data overview.
