Surveys/Catalogues etc. Based on ING Data

The ATLAS3D Project combines a multi-wavelength survey of a complete sample of 260 early-type galaxies within the local (42Mpc) volume (1.16×105 Mpc3) with numerical simulations and semi-analytic modeling of galaxy formation.The observational part of the project consists of optical integral-field spectroscopy using the SAURON integral-field unit on the William Herschel Telescope, radio observations with the Westerbork Radio Synthesis Telescope (WRST), millimeter observations with the IRAM 30m telescope and the Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy (CARMA), together with deep imaging with MegaCam on the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT). More.
The INT Wide Field Survey (WFS) used the Wide Field Camera (~0.3 deg2 ) on the Isaac Newton Telescope. The WFS is an umbrella for competitively judged science programmes. Multicolour data have been obtained over 200+ square degrees to a typical depth of ~25 mag (U through Z). The preliminary processing and calibration (up to object catalogue generation) is the responsibility of the WFS project. More.
IPHAS is an imaging survey of the Northern Milky Way in visible light (Hα, r, i) down to >20th magnitude, using the Isaac Newton Telescope. More.
KIS ‐ Kepler INT Survey
The Kepler INT Survey is a deep 5-filter optical survey of the Kepler field, obtained with the Isaac Newton Telescope. The survey employs ugri broad-band filters as well as Hα and is conducted by the IPHAS/UVEX collaboration, sharing the same survey pointing and data reduction strategy. Its main goals are to complement the Kepler Input Catalog by going deeper and offering additional diagnostics by adding u and Hα imaging. More.
The MILES stellar library consists of ~1000 stars spanning a large range in atmospheric parameters. The spectra were obtained at the Isaac Newton Telescope and cover the range 3525-7500Å at 2.50Å (FWHM) spectral resolution. In addition we also provide spectra for the near-IR Ca II triplet stellar library, 8350-9020Å and 1.5Å (FWHM), and SSP models. The spectral resolution, spectral type coverage, flux calibration accuracy and number of stars in both libraries represent a substantial improvement over previous libraries used in population synthesis models. More.
The Millennium Galaxy Catalogue (MGC) is a 37.5 deg2, medium-deep, B-band imaging survey obtained with the Wide Field Camera on the Isaac Newton Telescope. The survey region is a long, 35 arcmin wide strip along the equator, covering from 10h 00m to 14h 45m and is fully contained within the regions of both the Two Degree Field Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). More.
RATS-Kepler is a deep, high cadence, photometric survey of the Kepler field using the Isaac Newton Telescope and the MDM 1.2m Telescope on Kitt Peak. The goal is to identify sources located in the Kepler field of view which are variable on a timescale between a few minutes and 1 hour. These targets would then be candidates for observation using Kepler in short cadence mode. More.
SAURON is not only a panoramic integral field spectrograph, but also a scientific project which main goal is to understand the formation and evolution of elliptical and lenticular galaxies and of spiral bulges from 3D observations. It is a survey of the kinematics and stellar populations of a representative sample of 72 nearby E, S0, and Sa galaxies observed with the integral-field spectrograph SAURON on the William Herschel Telescope. More.
UVEX is a double-pass survey of the Northern Galactic Plane in the RGO U, Sloan g, Sloan r and the He I 5875 filters down to g=21 using the Isaac Newton Telescope. The aim is to find hot, blue, but relatively low luminosity objects in the Galactic Plane. Any Galactic population brighter than MV = 10 shows a strong concentration towards the Galactic Plane. Single white dwarfs and white dwarf binaries (detached, AM CVn, cataclysmic Vvriables, symbiotics), subdwarf B stars (including the ones in binaries) and extreme helium stars form the main target of the UVEX survey. More.
WINGS (WIde-field Nearby Galaxy-cluster Survey) is an all-sky (|b|>20) survey of a complete, X-ray selected sample of galaxy clusters in the redshift range 0.04-0.07. The core of the WINGS project is the optical (B,V) imaging survey. It provides photometric data for huge samples of galaxies (~550,000) and stars (~190,000) in the inner field (34'×34') of 77 nearby galaxy clusters, as well as structural and morphological information for a sub-sample (~50,000) of relatively bright galaxies. Spectroscopic information for ~6,000 galaxies in 48 WINGS clusters is provided by a follow-up multi-fiber, medium-resolution survey, while additional photometric information comes from follow-up imaging surveys in the NIR and U-band (18 WINGS clusters). WINGS data were obtained mainly using the Wide-Field Camera on the Isaac Newton Telescope and AF2/WYFFOS spectrograph on the William Herschel Telescope. More.
