The Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) was used to survey the radio sky at 150 MHz between 2010 and 2012. To date, the data collected by the TIFR GMRT Sky Survey (TGSS) project team remained largely unpublished within the scope of that project. We independently reprocessed the TGSS data using the SPAM pipeline, which includes corrections for direction-dependent ionospheric phase effects. Our first alternative data release (ADR1) includes continuum stokes I images of 99.5 percent of the radio sky north of -53° DEC (3.6π sr, or 90 percent of the full sky) at a resolution of 25“ x 25” north of 19° DEC and 25“ x 25” / cos(DEC-19°) south of 19°, and a median noise of 3.5 mJy/beam. The extracted radio source catalog contains positions, flux densities, sizes and more for 0.62 Million sources down to a 7-sigma peak-to-noise threshold. The data processing and products are described in detail in Intema et al. (2017).

  • 22-Aug-2018: Since 1-2 weeks there have been some issues with the VO server where TGSS ADR is hosted. As a result, also NASA SkyView has not been working correctly for TGSS ADR. Please know that the problem is being addressed, and SkyView is expected to properly work again in a matter of days.
  • 01-Dec-2017: A special version of TGSS ADR1 has been combined with NVSS to create a spectral index map and catalog of approx. 80 percent of the radio sky. The public data release page is found here.
  • 15-Nov-2016: The TGSS-based LOFAR Sky Model Creator now has a flux cutoff option to exclude sources below a
