Spitzer Survey of Deep Drilling Fields (DeepDrill) Overview
DeepDrill Overview DeepDrill Data Access DeepDrill Cutouts DeepDrill Catalogs


The Vera C. Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) will observe several Deep Drilling Fields (DDFs) to a greater depth and with a more rapid cadence than the main survey. The "DeepDrill" survey (Program ID 11086, P.I. Lacy) used the Spitzer Space Telescope Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) to observe three of the four currently defined DDFs in two bands, centered on 3.6 um and 4.5 um. These observations expand the area which was covered by an earlier set of observations in these three fields by the Spitzer Extragalactic Representative Volume Survey (SERVS). The combined DeepDrill and SERVS data cover the footprints of the LSST DDFs in the Extended Chandra Deep Field-South field (ECDFS), the ELAIS-S1 field (ES1), and the XMM-Large-Scale Structure Survey field (XMM-LSS).
