Title: The Photometric and Astrometric Properties of DECam as Enablers of Precision Science

Abstract

Precise and accurate calibration of a wide-field imager with the areal coverage of DECam is not a trivial task. In this talk, I will discuss the astrometric and photometric calibration of individual DECam images, as well as that of DECam surveys, with particular reference to the Dark Energy Survey (DES) and the Blanco Imaging of the Southern Sky (BLISS) survey.
