We present optical and near-infrared photometry of sources in the Fornax cluster field in 6 filters (u, g, r, i, J and Ks), including catalogues of Globular Clusters (GCs) and Ultra-Compact Dwarfs (UCDs) in the Fornax Cluster. The optical and near-infrared images stem from three different data sets and cover 16 square degrees out to the virial radius of the Fornax cluster: the optical data of the Fornax Deep Survey (FDS) in u, g, r, i and near-infrared data from the VISTA Hemisphere Survey (VHS) in J and ESO/VISTA archival data in Ks. We also present the final coaaded Ks images of the Fornax galaxy Cluster. We used a deep set of Ks band observations of the Fornax cluster (ESO programme ID 090.B-0.477(A), 092.B-0.622(A), 094.B-0.536(A), 096.B-0.532(A), PI: Munoz) that were carried out using VIRCAM, the near-infrared camera of the VISTA telescope from October 2012 to March 2016. The final co-added frames have an average FWHM~0.7-arcsec and a 5σ limiting magnitude of 18.4mag (~1.0-arcsec and 17.7mag for the Ks data of VHS). (8 data files).
