It aims to image 1500 square degrees in four filters (ugri). The core science driver is mapping the large-scale matter distribution in the Universe, using weak lensing shear and photometric redshift measurements. Further science cases include galaxy evolution, Milky Way structure, detection of high-redshift clusters, and finding rare sources such as strong lenses and quasars. Here we present the third public data release (DR3) and several associated data products, adding further area, homogenized photometric calibration, photometric redshifts and weak lensing shear measurements to the first two releases. A dedicated pipeline embedded in the Astro-WISE information system is used for the production of the main release. Modifications with respect to earlier releases are described in detail. Photometric redshifts have been derived using both Bayesian template fitting, and machine-learning techniques. For the weak lensing measurements, optimized procedures based on the THELI data reduction and lensfit shear measurement packages are used. The multi-band catalogue, including homogenized photometry and photometric redshifts, covers the combined DR1, DR2 and DR3 footprint of 440 survey tiles (447deg2). Limiting magnitudes are typically 24.3, 25.1, 24.9, 23.8 (5 sigma in a 2 arcsec aperture) in ugri, respectively, and the typical r-band PSF size is less than 0.7 arcsec. The photometric homogenization scheme ensures accurate colors and an absolute calibration stable to ∼2% for gri and ∼3% in u. Separately released are a weak lensing shear catalogue and photometric redshifts based on two different machine-learning techniques. Description: KiDS-ESO-DR3 contains a multi-band source catalogue encompassing all publicly released tiles, a total of 440 survey tiles including the coadded images, weight maps, masks and source lists of 292 survey tiles of KiDS-ESO-DR3, adding to the 148 tiles released previously (50 in KiDS-ESO-DR1 and 98 in KiDS-ESO-DR2).

Note (1): Result of the S/G classification as below: 1 = high-confidence star candidates, 2 = objects with FWHM smaller than stars in the stellar locus, e.g., some cosmic-rays and/or other unreliable sources, 4 = stars according to S/G separation, and 0 = otherwise (galaxies); Flag values are summed, so mClass=5 signifies a high-confidence star candidate that is also above the S/G separation line. Note (2): The extraction flag of a source given as a sum of powers of 2 by SExtractor. If a source has neighbors (flag = 1) and is blended with another source (flag = 2) and some pixels are saturated (flag = 4), then the final extraction flag given to the source is 7 (= 1+4+2). Generally, a source with the extraction flag 0 gives the most reliable photometry. For detailed information on this flag, see the SExtractor User's Manual. Note (3): The flag image is used during source extraction for the single-band source list to flag sources whose isophotes overlap with the critical areas. The resulting flags are stored in the following two SExtractor parameters: IMAFLAGS_ISO: sum of all mask flags encountered in the isophote profile; NIMAFLAG_ISO: number of flagged pixels entering IMAFLAGS_ISO. 1 = Readout spike 2 = Saturation code 4 = Diffraction spike 8 = Primary halo 16 = Secondary halo 32 = Tertiary halo 64 = Bad pixel See section 4.4 in de Jong et al. (2015A&A...582A..62D) for further explanations. Note (4): Magnitudes uncertainties ≥100mag have been left blank by CDS. Note (5): These magnitudes are based on Gaussian Aperture and Photometry (GAaP) measurements and are mainly intended for colour measurements, since they only probe the central regions of the source. They are not total magnitudes, except in the case of unresolved or point sources. Note (6): Zero-point offsets for each filter based on stellar locus regression (gri) and overlap photometry (ugri) that homogenize the photometry over the survey. Please note that these offsets, as well as the extinction corrections EXTSFD<filter> have not been applied in the fluxes and magnitudes provided in the catalog. These corrections should be applied as: MAG*<filter>corrected = MAG*<filter>+ZPTOFFSET<filter>-EXTSFD<filter> Note (7): A measure of the uni-modality of the redshift Probability Distribution Function; a higher value indicates a higher reliability of the best photo-z estimate. Note (8): The best-fit spectral template for each source; these values correspond to the following types, where fractional types can occur because the templates are interpolated (Capak, 2004, PhD. thesis, Univ. Hawai'i). Flag as follows: 1 = CWW-Ell, 2 = CWW-Sbc, 3 = CWW-Scd, 4 = CWW-Im, 5 = KIN-SB3, 6 = KIN-SB2. Note (9): Bitmap that identifies coadds that are severely affected by image defects such as scattered light features. Masking of these features is currently not available for the imaging data released in KiDS-ESO-DR3, so data tiles flagged with this flag should be used with caution. The flag values indicate which filter is affected: 1 = u ; 2 = g ; 3 = r ; 4 = i .
