This site provides access to all the documents generated by CASU for the UK review being held on the 24th & 25th October 2006 at the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge.
Documentation for the Science Archive design by the WFAU group is available at http://www.roe.ac.uk/~nch/wfcam.
provides an overview of various aspects of the UK pipeline and discusses the UK user requirements document , an updated version in response to the UK review recommendations is now available here.
provides a detailed description of the algorithms used and details of the modules and their interfaces as delivered to ESO. These provide the pawprint processing part of the UK pipeline. For the most recent version click here.
This is an ESO deliverable describing the calibration procedures for VIRCAM, which are the same whichever reduction software is subsequently employed.
this is a draft of a MNRAS paper mainly describing the algorithmic and technical aspects of the WFCAM pipeline. Virtually all of this methodology is applicable to the VIRCAM pipeline.
this explains the procedures developed to calibrate WFCAM data. VISTA photometric calibration is expected to be similar.
description and reference to the web pages showing the status of pipeline processing and survey progress for WFCAM
Other relevant papers
a description of application of CASU list-driven photometry techniques to generate milli-mag precision lightcurves.
further VIRCAM-specific details can be found in the WFAU-CASU ICD
