The UltraViolet Imaging of the Cosmic Assembly Near-infrared Deep Extragalactic Legacy Survey Fields (UVCANDELS) survey provided ultraviolet F275W imaging with coordinated parallel optical F435W imaging in four of the five CANDELS fields: GOODS-N, GOODS-S, EGS, and COSMOS, covering a total area of ∼426 arcmin2. UVCANDELS takes primary WFC3/UVIS F275W exposures at a uniform 3-orbit depth and ACS F435W exposures (in parallel) at slightly varying depth due to the roll angle constraints and the overlap from the increased field of view of the ACS camera, reaching a limiting magnitude of ∼27 and ∼28 ABmag (5σ in 0.″2 apertures) for F275W and F435W, respectively. We present the results of the UVCANDELS observations, custom calibrations, and the creation of F275W and F435W imaging mosaics, which have been made publicly available on the Barbara A. Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes.
