Note:The NOAO (National Optical Astronomy Observatory) Deep Wide-Field Survey is an optical and near infrared imaging survey of 18 square degrees of the sky. Because of its great depth (26th AB mag in the optical bands, five sigma detections in a 2" diameter apt), many sources have been detected and the field has been targeted for extensive follow-up observations at other wavelengths. Additional information about the survey can be found at http://www.noao.edu/noao/noaodeep/. We have released some images to the public and are preparing to release the bulk of our images and catalogues. First citation in 2003ApJ...597..225B.
