Public Data Release
The first public data release includes over 100 square degrees of deep multi-color data served through dedicated databases and user interfaces. Visit the data release site for details. There will be subsequent data releases in 2019 and 2021.
|Data Release 1||Released in Feb 2017|
|Data Release 2||Released in May 2019|
|Data Release 3 (final release)||2021|
Notes on Raw Data
Raw data from the Subaru Telescope are nominally made available to the public 1.5 years after they are acquired. However, as approved by the Subaru Advisory Committee, the HSC SSP data will be an exception to this rule. The release of all the SSP raw data will be synchronized with the public data release. That is, raw data used for, e.g., DR1, will be released to the community together with the DR1 science products.
hscMap for COSMOS UltraDeep
Here we show the images of COSMOS-UltraDeep through hscMap, a googleMap-like image browser, to illustrate the image quality and depth of our data. You can navigate yourself around the COSMOS field by scrolling and zooming-in/out the image. You can also change the filter combination by clicking the “color” button the top-left. Enjoy!
Data processing is performed at NAOJ, Kavli-IPMU, and Princeton University. The computing resources at NAOJ are operated by Subaru Telescope and Astronomy Data Center, and are being enhanced in collaboration with Center for Computational Astrophysics (CfCA) for large scale processing in the upcoming data releases. All the processed data are loaded to catalog databases and distributed to users through the dedicated archive system hosted and operated by NAOJ.
