The SDSS Data Release 7 Supplemental
The original description of the original DRsup, along with that of
DR5 to which it originally referred, are described in the DR5 paper, Adelman-McCarthy et al. 2007, ApJ
Supplements, in press [pdf, 1 MB].
Imaging Runs and Spectroscopic Plates which do not fall into
a category such as "Legacy" "SEGUE" "Supernovae", have been
presented in previous SDSS data releases as part of a DRsup "Data Release
Supplemental" package. With DR7, this supplemental data
are folded into the three CAS and one DAS databases.
The supplemental imaging is a list of special imaging scans,
not taken on Legacy or SEGUE survey stripes.
Here is the list of special imaging
runs available .
While only a subset of these runs are searchable in the CAS SQL
databases, the remainder are available as part of a
DAS (Data Archive Server). This is a flat-file web-based file
server which allows retrieval via 'browser-tools' such as IE, Firefox
or command-line interfaces such as 'wget' or 'curl'.
