Image Cutout Service

This service allows you to query reduced, WCS-registered SkyMapper images for those matching your region of interest. It will return image information and cutouts of the specified size around your search coordinates. You may additionally specify which filters and date ranges to return. The cutout service is also accessible through VO-aware clients like Aladin using the IVOA Simple Image Access Protocol (SIAP). See the How To Access page for more information.

Note: By using SkyMapper data, you agree to observe the SkyMapper policies published on this website.

Use of this service for systematic harvesting of large sky areas is not permitted. Users abusing the image cutout service will be blocked.
