We are planning to use three fields from the High-cadence Transient Survey (HiTS; Forster, et al (2016), ApJ 832:155) for the alert production verification system (ap_verify). These three fields were imaged in both 2014 and 2015 with DECam and thus can be used for effectively testing the alert production pipelines. We have already packaged up these three fields (Blind15A_26, Blind15A_40, and Blind15A_42) from 2015 into the ap_verify_hits2015 repo.
The plan is to also set up the three fields for both 2014 and 2015 in /datasets in the /datasets/decam/hits subdirectory, with separate additional subdirectories for each of the two years' exposures and then by each field. We will also include relevant master calibs and Gaia and PS1 reference catalogs in HTM format that overlap these three fields.
We would also like to include pre-generated coadds to be used as templates for image subtraction. The current thought is to place these under PREPROCESSED/templates.
