Dark Energy Survey Data Release 2

The object catalog of the Data Release 2 (DR2) of the Dark Energy Survey (DES) has been ingested into the CosmoHub service. DES is based on optical/near-infrared imaging by the Dark Energy Camera mounted on the 4-m Blanco telescope at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile. DR2 consists of single-epoch and coadded images, a source catalog derived from coadded images and associated data products assembled from 6 years of DES science operation. The release includes data from the 5000 deg2 wide-area survey covering the southern Galactic cap in 5 broad photometric bands.

The now available catalog consists of 691,483,608 objects with about 480 parameters. The total size of the catalog is ~3 TiB. The DES DR2 catalog is available for exploration and download at cosmohub.pic.es.
