We describe the construction of an all-sky galaxy catalogue, using SuperCOSMOS scans of Schmidt photographic plates from theUKSchmidt Telescope and Second Palomar Observatory Sky Survey. The photographic photometry is calibrated using Sloan Digital Sky Survey data, with results that are linear to 2 per cent or better. All-sky photometric uniformity is achieved by matching plate overlaps and also by requiring homogeneity in optical-to-2MASS colours, yielding zero-points that are uniform to 0.03… 

Edinburgh Research Explorer The SuperCOSMOS all-sky galaxy catalogue

We describe the construction of an all-sky galaxy catalogue, using SuperCOSMOS scans of Schmidt photographic plates from the UKST and POSS2 surveys. The photographic photometry is calibrated using

WISE × SuperCOSMOS PHOTOMETRIC REDSHIFT CATALOG: 20 MILLION GALAXIES OVER 3π STERADIANS

We cross-match the two currently largest all-sky photometric catalogs—mid-infrared Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer and SuperCOSMOS scans of UKST/POSS-II photographic plates—to obtain a new galaxy

Tomographic local 2D analyses of the WISExSuperCOSMOS all-sky galaxy catalogue

The recent progress in obtaining larger and deeper galaxy catalogues is of fundamental importance for cosmological studies, especially to robustly measure the large scale density fluctuations in the

The dipole anisotropy of WISE × SuperCOSMOS number counts

We probe the isotropy of the Universe with the largest all-sky photometric redshift dataset currently available, namely WISE~$\times$~SuperCOSMOS. We search for dipole anisotropy of galaxy number

Wide-area tomography of CMB lensing and the growth of cosmological density fluctuations

We describe a tomographic dissection of the Planck CMB lensing data, cross-correlating this map with galaxies in different ranges of photometric redshift. We use the nearly all-sky 2MPZ and WISExSCOS

Tomographic Imaging of the Fermi-LAT γ-Ray Sky through Cross-correlations: A Wider and Deeper Look

We investigate the nature of the extragalactic unresolved γ-ray background (UGRB) by cross-correlating several galaxy catalogs with sky maps of the UGRB built from 78 months of Pass 8 Fermi-Large

All-sky angular power spectra from cleaned WISE×SuperCOSMOS galaxy number counts

Aiming to extract cosmological information from linear scales of the WISE×SuperCOSMOS photometric redshift catalog, we perform a characterization of the systematic effects associated with stellar

Machine-learning identification of galaxies in the WISE × SuperCOSMOS all-sky catalogue

Context. The two currently largest all-sky photometric datasets, WISE and SuperCOSMOS, have been recently cross-matched to construct a novel photometric redshift catalogue on 70% of the sky. Galaxies

Constraining Gravity at Large Scales with the 2MASS Photometric Redshift Catalog and Planck Lensing

We present a new measurement of structure growth at z ≃ 0.08 obtained by correlating the cosmic microwave background (CMB) lensing potential map from the Planck satellite with the angular

Extracting cosmological information from the angular power spectrum of the 2MASS Photometric Redshift catalogue

Using the almost all-sky 2MASS Photometric Redshift catalogue (2MPZ) we perform for the first time a tomographic analysis of galaxy angular clustering in the local Universe ($z<0.24$). We estimate
