This page provides links to single passband images, together with their corresponding weight maps, and to the object lists extracted from them. The images have been fully recalibrated (astrometry/photometry). The image World Coordinate System (WCS) is referred to the COE projection. An IRAF tool for converting the WCS from COE projection to TAN projection is available as the reswcs task in the IRAF package EIS. The task is also included in the Scisoft IRAF installation and is available as a standalone version (FORTRAN).
It is important to note that this task does not re-map the pixels and may introduce small astrometric errors at the edges of large images.

Details on the observations, data reduction and the final products can be found in the reference publication, now in preparation (Benoist et al. 2001).

*For both the EIS-Deep and Deep Public Survey the Chandra Deep Field South data release, both imaging data and catalogues are available worldwide.

*Release Date: 09 May 2001

WARNING: The released weight maps for the SOFI observations (packages #: EIS_DEEP_001_ima, EIS_DEEP_002_ima) have been found to be corrupted (03/07/01). We are taking the necessary action to solve the problem. The corrected image packages will be realesed soon. We apologize the users for this inconvenience.

WARNING: After the data release, A. Cimatti, E. Giallongo, E. Daddi, P.Saracco, C. Lidman and P.Rosati have reported to the EIS Team that a systematic offset was present at faint magnitudes between the released Infrared data and their independent photometry in the Chandra Deep Field South. Their warning has prompted a though check of the procedure and a typo was indeed found in the reduction program. This has now been corrected, the reductions and the generation of all other survey products are under way and a new release will follow soon. Stay Tuned.
