CFHTLS-T0007 photometric redshifts

October 8th 2012

This page provides information about publicly-available photometric redshifts in the Canada-France Hawaii Telescope Legacy survey wide fields. These photometric redshifts were computed using the TERAPIX-T0007 photometric catalogues.

These photometric redshifts were computed at Terapix and LAM using the TERAPIX-T0007 photometric catalogues. They have been calibrated using spectroscopic redshifts from the VVDS , zCOSMOS and VIPERS surveys obtained at the ESO-VLT, as well as DEEP2 obtained at the Keck.

The data can be retrieved from the following ftp repository :

server : ftpix2.iap.fr

If you use these photometric redshifts in a publication, please reference Ilbert et al. (2006) and Coupon et al. (2009).

Information about the catalogues

-  The input photometric catalogues are those the CFHTLS-T0007. Magnitudes in this catalogue were corrected for galactic extinction using the Schlegel et al (1998) dust maps.

-  Full information about the catalogues can be found in the release documentation in the ftp directory.
