When do Legacy Science data enter the public domain?
Posted by IRSA HelpDesk on 11 March 2013 03:38 PM
Raw and pipeline-processed Legacy Science data from Spitzer enter the public domain once they are processed and verified at the SSC. This will typically take up to a few weeks after the observations are performed. Data are electronically accessible from the Spitzer Science Archive. In addition, each of the projects will produce higher-level post-pipeline data products, such as image mosaics and source catalogs. Intermediate versions of these products will be delivered to the SSC every six months. Most of the projects incorporate ancillary data from ground-based observatories and/or other space-based telescopes. In general, the teams will make these data available rapidly to the community-at-large, in the same spirit as for the Spitzer data.
