ADC_Keywords: Magellanic Clouds ; Photometry, infrared ; Surveys Mission_Name: ESO Keywords: magellanic clouds; infrared: stars; stars: variables: Cepheids; stars: variables: RR Lyrae; Hertzsprung-Russell and C-M diagrams; survey Abstract: The new VISual and Infrared Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) has started operations in 2009. Over its first five years it collected data for six public surveys, one of which is the near-infrared YJKs VISTA survey of the Magellanic Clouds system (VMC). This survey comprises the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), the Small Magellanic Cloud, the Magellanic Bridge connecting the two galaxies and two fields in the Magellanic Stream. The main goals of the VMC survey are the determination of the spatially-resolved star-formation history and the three-dimensional structure of the Magellanic system. The VMC survey is therefore designed to reach stars as faint as the oldest main sequence turn-off point and to constrain the mean magnitude of pulsating variables such as RR Lyrae stars and Cepheids. The VMC data are comprised of multi-epoch observations which are executed following specific time constraints. The first science results, aimed at assessing the scientific quality of the VMC data, include an overview of the distribution of stars in colour-magnitude and colour-colour diagrams, the detection of planetary nebulae and stellar clusters, and the Ks band light-curves of variable stars. The VMC survey represents a tremendous improvement, in spatial resolution and sensitivity, on previous panoramic observations of the Magellanic system in the near-infrared, providing a powerful complement to deep observations at other wavelengths. Description: The VISTA survey of the Magellanic Clouds system (VMC) survey is a homogeneous and uniform YJKs survey of ∼184deg2 across the Magellanic system. Observations were obtained with the VISTA telescope as part of the VISTA survey of the Magellanic Cloud system (VMC; ESO program 179.B-2003). This data release is based on the observa tions of twelve new VMC survey tiles LMC 3_5, 4_2, 4_3, 7_3, 9_3, SMC 4_3, 5_2, 5_4, BRI 2_8, 3_5, and STR 1_1, 2_1. Observations were acquired between November 2009 and August 2013. Acknowledging the VMC in publications: Please include the following acknowledgment in any published material that makes use of this data products: Based on observations made with ESO Telescopes at the La Silla or Paranal Observatories under programme ID 179.B-2003.

Note (1): The IAUNAME of sources in the PSF catalogues may not be unique. At this stage, sources in the overlap of tiles will appear with the same IAUNAME. Furthermore, the IAUNAME is rounded to two decimal points in arcsec, hence, it may be possible that two sufficiently close extractions result in two sources with the same IAUNAME. Note (2): Sources are unique within each tile. Where PRIORSEC>0 signifies that a source is located in a region of overlap with an adjacent tile that is not yet part of the current release. Note (3): Class flag as follows: 1 = gal (6605196 occurrences in merged bands) 0 = noise (36890 occurrences in merged bands) -1 = star (6473980 occurrences in merged bands) -2 = probStar (702149 occurrences in merged bands) -3 = probGal (39431 occurrences in merged bands) -9 = saturated (0 occurrence) Note (4): Quality error bit flags assigned during post processing are listed at http://horus.roe.ac.uk/vsa/ppErrBits.html These flags refer to quality issues of varying severity. For each pass-band nine quality issues are implemented as follows, where the corresponding value of the ppErrBit is given in parenthesis. Source is deblended (16), has bad pixel(s) in default aperture (64), has low confidence in default aperture (128), lies within detector #16 region of a tile (4096), is close to saturation (65536), has photometric calibration probably subject to systematic errors (131072), lies within a dither offset of the stacked frame boundary (4194304), lies within the underexposed strip of a tile (8388606), and lies within an underexposed region of a tile due to missing detector (16777216). To select only sources without quality issues the user can filter on ppErrBits=0, but note that all sources in this catalog have at least ppErrBits=16 due to the dense stellar field, and to include only sources with minor quality issues use ppErrBits<256.
