The cumulative trends show the progress up to April 01, 2016.  The percentage of completion is the observation completion rate with respect to the time requested for survey completion in the survey management plans.



Here above we show the expected progress of completion of the first cycle of VISTA surveys, that are currently ongoing. Continuos black line shows the available observing time in each bin, based on the last 3.5 year of VISTA operations. The VISTA public surveys selected in the second cycle will start operation as more telecsope time become available, following the completion of the ongoing surveys.
