The Palomar Transient Factory and IPAC announces the Third Data Release (DR3). This release adds to DR1 and DR2 by including selected g- and R-band data obtained from January 1, 2013 through January 28, 2015. This represents the first 25 months of the intermediate PTF (iPTF) phase, defined primarily by a change in partnership and science goals. Like PTF, the iPTF survey does not use a uniform coverage observation strategy and so there exist significant gaps in sky coverage. Also, there is less coverage at g-band than R-band.More details and access instructions are available at:
