VI photometric maps of the OGLE-III LMC fields

We present the OGLE-III Photometric Maps of the Large Magellanic Cloud. They cover about 40 square degrees of the LMC and contain mean, calibrated VI photometry and astrometry of about 35 million stars observed during seven observing seasons of the third phase of the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment - OGLE-III. We discuss the quality of data and present color-magnitude diagrams of selected fields.

To check if we observe(d) at particular RA/Dec, use OGLE Field Finder.

The OGLE-III Photometric Maps of the LMC are available to the astronomical community from the OGLE Internet archive. See README file there for details.

Any comments about the data and the form of their presentation are welcome as they can improve the future releases of photometric maps of other OGLE-III fields. Send your messages to this address.
