The VISTA Science Archive contains data from all pipeline processed VISTA programmes, both survey programmes (i.e. the ESO Public Surveys) and non-survey programmes (science verification, engineering, discretionary time to private PIs etc.) In general, these data have proprietary periods attached to them: Public Survey data are for use by Survey Team members only for a period of up to 18 months after observation. Once this proprietary period has expired, the data become available to the world.
If you wish to access Public Survey proprietary data then you must request to join the relevant survey team to obtain an appropriate username and password. This enables you to log in to the archive server and gain full access to the proprietary data associated with that team.
