GALEX survey updated to GR5

We have updated our ultraviolet GALEX survey with the latest GR5 (http://galex.stsci.edu/GR4/) release. It contains 870 new tiles of sky coverage from the primary mission surveys.  In addition, 266 GR4 tiles were delivered with extended exposure times. Since GR5 was processed with the same pipeline as GR4, it may be considered a supplement to GR4. [...]

GALEX is on-line

      GALEX survey is now available on all WikiSky servers. The response might be a bit slow on first deep-zoom view of non-popular areas as full resolution images are downloaded and cached locally on demand. ____________

GALEX

  We’re about to finish work on new high resolution all sky survey – GALEX. The Galaxy Evolution Explorer is an orbiting space telescope observing galaxies in ultraviolet light across 10 billion years of cosmic history. GALEX GR4 imaging data contains about 31,200 2 color band frames with round image area of 2900 pixels in diameter [...]

Sloan Digital Sky Survey local hosting

We’ve added to WikiSky ability to cut images from  SDSS (DR7) locally. WikiSky is still using exetrnal cutout tool (casjobs.sdss.org) for SDSS DR6,5,4 and 3. The problem with casjobs is that it has limited projection options that causes siginificant alignment problems when you move far away from projection center. Our image cutout tool has rich projections options, [...]

Sloan Digitial Sky Survey updated

We published new data release of SDSS sky survey (SDSS DR7). We also opened access to previous sky surveys since DR3 and added ability to show SDSS survey in wide angle. Before there was limitation to show survey in zoom level 6 and deeper due to angle restriction on remote server that hosts the survey’s [...]
