This environnement provides access to all data from the VIMOS VLT Deep Survey.
The VIMOS VLT Deep Survey (VVDS) is a comprehensive deep galaxy spectroscopic redshift survey conducted by the VIMOS collaboration with the VIMOS multi-slit spectrograph at the ESO-VLT. The VVDS is a combination of 3 nested purely magnitude selected surveys: Wide (17.5 ≤ iAB ≤ 22.5; 8.6 deg²), Deep (17.5 ≤ iAB ≤ 24; 0.6 deg²), Ultra-Deep (23 ≤ iAB ≤ 24.75; 512 arcmin²), with a total of 22434, 12051, 1041 galaxies with measured redshifts in the range 0 < z < 6.7, as identified in the redshift histograms below.
The VVDS fields include:
