Abstract (from CDS):
Multi-tiered Extragalactic Survey (HerMES) is the largest Guaranteed Time Key Programme on the Herschel
Space Observatory. With a wedding cake survey strategy, it consists of nested fields with varying depth and area totalling ∼ 380 deg2. In this paper, we present deep point source catalogues extracted from Herschel
-Spectral and Photometric Imaging Receiver (SPIRE) observations of all HerMES fields, except for the later addition of the 270 deg2 HerMES Large-Mode Survey (HeLMS) field. These catalogues constitute the second Data Release (DR2) made in 2013 October. A sub-set of these catalogues, which consists of bright sources extracted from Herschel
-SPIRE observations completed by 2010 May1 (covering ∼ 74 deg2) were released earlier in the first extensive data release in 2012 March. Two different methods are used to generate the point source catalogues, the sussextractor point source extractor used in two earlier data releases (EDR and EDR2) and a new source detection and photometry method. The latter combines an iterative source detection algorithm, starfinder, and a De-blended SPIRE Photometry algorithm. We use end-to-end Herschel
-SPIRE simulations with realistic number counts and clustering properties to characterize basic properties of the point source catalogues, such as the completeness, reliability, photometric and positional accuracy. Over 500 000 catalogue entries in HerMES fields (except HeLMS) are released to the public through the HeDAM (Herschel
Database in Marseille) website (http://hedam.lam.fr/HerMES
