Quality Control

At ESO Headquarters in Garching, the Quality Control and Data Processing Group ("QC Garching") processes all calibration data from the Paranal instruments (VLT, VLTI, survey cameras). Their quality is checked and monitored. If certified, master calibrations are archived and offered to the community for reducing science data.

In addition, QC Garching processes pre-imaging science data.

For selected instruments and instrument modes, we create science-grade data products and offer them through the Data Products Query Form of the Science Archive.

Find here information about the VLT/ VLTI pipelines.

Select by instrument for information about data types, QC parameters, trending, and pipeline recipes.


Science-grade data products (all accessible here):

UVES UVES ECHELLE data, point sources: quality-controlled, homogeneous processing of complete data stream 2000-now
XSHOOTER XSHOOTER SLIT data: quality-controlled, homogeneous processing of complete data stream 2009-now
GIRAFFE GIRAFFE Medusa data: quality-controlled, homogeneous processing of complete data stream 2003-now
MUSE MUSE IFU data: quality-controlled, homogeneous processing of complete data stream 2014-now (OB-based)
MUSE_DEEP coming soon: deep combination of MUSE IFU datacubes across OBs
HAWKI coming soon: HAWKI images and catalogues, data stream 2015-now (the data 2008-2015 have already been processed by CASU and are available here)
KMOS planned: KMOS IFU datacubes
