SkyMapper Science Projects

This is a list of protected science projects planning to use SkyMapper data. Other users of SkyMapper data releases may not compete with these projects during the proprietary period. New members may join the survey projects at the discretion of the individual project leaders. Membership will not normally be refused, assuming a significant contribution to the project is offered by the prospective member.
