Data Access

Added 2 May 2016; last updated 6 Jun 2017

The ARC LIEF grant which funds the operation of SkyMapper's Southern Sky Survey provides for priority data access to Australian users. For the purposes of data access, the definition of 'Australian users' is taken to mean persons residing within Australia. Members of approved Survey Science Projects who reside outside of Australia will also be provided with access to the data. After a typical 12-18-month proprietary period, each data release from DR1 onwards will become globally available.
