These pages present stacked images and catalogues for the CFHTLS Deep
and Wide Fields. It provides links to the data, information on how
the images and catalogues were produced and quality control information
on the data.
If you use this data in a publication, please include the following acknowledgment:

of CFHT and CEA/DAPNIA, at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT)
which is operated by the National Research Council (NRC) of Canada,
the Institut National des Science de l'Univers of the Centre National
de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) of France, and the University of

Canadian Astronomy Data Centre as part of the Canada-France-Hawaii
Telescope Legacy Survey, a collaborative project of NRC and CNRS."

The following will give you links to the images and catalogues for the Deep and Wide fields.
There are two versions of the Deep Fields: The
"full" version contains all usuable data taken as part of the completed
survey. In addition, "best seeing" versions of the Deep fields have
been produced These images have final image qualities of 0.65
arcseonds. The selection of the best seeing images is dicussed in
There is only one version of the Wide fields.
Alternatively, you can browse the CFHTLS and retreive images, catalogs
or image cutouts using
a Google Maps type interface:
For the Deep fields only, you can view the sky at a number of different wavelengths
from X-ray to Radio, again using a Google Maps interface.
Unified catalogues have been produced for the CFHTLS. Each catalogue
covers an entire survey (Deep or Wide).
If you do not wish to download the entire CFHTLS catalog, you may wish to
