DEEP2 Data Release 1

The fourth data release (DR4) for the DEEP2 galaxy redshift survey is now available, including the previously released data from DR1, DR2, and DR3. Documentation and download instructions for DR4 are available here.


The DEEP2 project is a redshift survey of 50,000 distant galaxies utilizing the DEIMOS spectrograph on the Keck II telescope. Data release 1 (DR1) is the first public data release for the survey and includes redshift and imaging catalogs in addition to 1-d and 2-d spectra for more than 7,500 objects. Data release 1 spans 70 DEIMOS slitmasks observed during the 2002 DEEP2 observing season (data collected August 2002 - October 2002). The slitmasks included in this release cover portions of three of the four DEEP2 fields as shown in this sky coverage map.

The DR1 Data Products Page provides details regarding the contents of data release 1 and links to all public data products available for download. Please refer to the credits page for a list of our sources of funding, participating institutions, and how to acknowledge the use of DEEP2 data in publications.
