The open time key programme GOODS-Herschel (P.I. D. Elbaz, described in Elbaz et al., 2011, A&A, 533, 119) is an international collaboration to study with the Herschel Space Laboratory the fields of the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS). It consists of a super deep survey in the Northern hemisphere (GOODS-North field) and an ultra deep survey in the Southern one (GOODS-South field) at 100 µm together with a shallower coverage at 160, 250, 350 and 500 µm.
The GOODS-North field is centered on the position of the Hubble Deep Field North. It has been observed with both SPIRE and PACS instruments.
Note that the SPIRE maps cover a larger area than the PACS ones (see figure 1) and that only the PACS region was used for source extraction.
The GOODS-South field is a 10'×10' area centered on the position of the Chandra Deep Field South. It was observed for 206 hours with PACS to reach the confusion limit at 100 µm.
