A Next Generation Microlensing Survey of the LMC
These data include repeated NOAO Mosaic II images of ~60 fields covering the bar and nearby areas of the Large Magellanic Cloud in the VR filter (bandpass approximately V+R) taken with the CTIO Blanco 4m telescope.

The astrometric accuracy is tied to the UCAC1 catalog and is ~0.08" RMS in most fields.

Additional information is provided though the project's web site.

The archived reduced data consists of individual amplifier images (16 images per single Mosaic image) which have been bias subtracted, flat-fielded, illumination corrected, and fringe corrected (for I-band images). The astrometric accuracy is tied to the USNO A2.0 catalog. The images also have a roughly photometric zeropoint based on the USNO A2.0 catalog.

FLAMEX Public Data Release DR1 (Bootes)
The FLAMINGOS Extragalactic Survey (FLAMEX) is a deep, near-infrared imaging survey covering 7.1 square degrees within the NOAO Deep Wide-Feld Survey (NDWFS) regions. FLAMEX is the first such deep, wide-area survey to image in both the J and Ks filters, and is larger than any previous NIR surveys to comparable depth. This is a release of the FLAMEX survey images of the BOOTES field, the complete catalog for the BOOTES field can be obtained from the FLAMEX web site Public Data Release.

Additional information is provided through the project's web site.

zBootes : z-band Observations of the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey Bootes Field
Optical imaging obtained for zBootes, a z-band survey of the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey Bootes Field using the Steward 2.3m Bok telescope and the 90Prime imager. The zBootes imaging covers 7.62 of the NDWFS survey area and reaches a mean 50% completeness limit of 22.8 mag in the z-band.

Faint Sky Variability Survey (FSVS)
The Faint Sky Variability Survey (FSVS) provides a database for studying faint populations and their variability, spanning 16-24 mag across the optical regime using e B, V, and I filters with time-sampling obtained in the V band over tens of s to years. With a total areal coverage of 23 sq. degrees at moderate-to-high Galactic latitudes, the FSVS also provides a sample spanning relatively different Galactic populations. The FSVS was part of the Isaac Newton Telescope (INT) Wide Field Survey. The INT is operated on the island of La Palma by the Isaac Newton Group the Spanish Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos of the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias. In addition to the images available in the Archive, the FSVS Photometric and astrometric catalogs can be found on the Archive FTP site at FSVS Catalogs.

The NEWFIRM Medium-Band Survey (NMBS): accurate redshifts for 40,000 K-selected galaxies
The data release includes deep NIR medium-bandwidth photometry in the J1, J2, J3, H1 and H2 bands over the wavelength range 1-1.8 microns, as well as broad-band K, in the AEGIS and COSMOS fields. The observations were carried out on the Mayall 4-m telescope on Kitt Peak using the NOAO Extremely Wide-Field Infrared Imager (NEWFIRM). We describe the full details of the observations, data reduction and photometry in a forthcoming paper (K. Whitaker et al. submitted to ApJ). Additional information is also available through the project's web site www.astro.yale.edu/nmbs.

A NEWFIRM Survey of the SDWFS/NDWFS Field
The Infrared Bootes Imaging Survey is a near-infrared imaging survey covering the entire Spitzer Deep Wide-Field Survey (SDWFS) region, which corresponds to the Bootes field of the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey. This public release includes data from 52 subfields that together span the region, and that overlap with one another by roughly 2 arcmin on each side. We provide both the final reduced images and J-band selected, line matched catalogs for all subfields. Along with these images, we also provide weight maps from the SWARP software, and flag images denoting regions with poor data (more details can be found here).

SZE+Optical Studies of the Cosmic Acceleration
Blanco Cosmology Survey (BCS) was a 60 night NOAO survey program on the Blanco 4m from 2005-2008 to study the cosmic acceleration using two different techniques. The first is a galaxy cluster survey in coordination with mm-wave surveys like APEX, ACT and SPT. The second is using the galaxy power spectrum to measure cosmological distances out to redshift z~1. Description of survey can be found here. A brief summary of these data can be found here.
