IRAC High Precision Photometry

These are datasets for the community to use to test the different reduction tecnhiqiues with the goal of comparing techniques allowing us to arrive at a set of "best practices" for high precision photometry with IRAC.  We expect to add more test datasets in the future.

  • This dataset was used for the Data Challenge associated with the 2014 summer AAS workshop.  It includes both simulated data and a dataset from the archive.
  • The datasets used for the second Data Challenge, at the 2015 IAU Workshop also include both simulated and real data.
