This dataset contains six pencil beam mock catalogues of a deep field of 1.4 times 1.4 square degrees.
These catalogues were created from the galaxy catalogue in
For a description of the "virtual observation" algorithm see

The data set is distributed over two times 6 tables. Containing Johnson magnitudes plus some physical information
and SDSS magnitudes respectively. There are furthermore 6 views defined that merge the observational properties of these
tables together. The following are some example queries:
select floor(redshift_obs/.1)*.1 as z,count(*) as n
where k_j < 22
group by floor(redshift_obs/.1)*.1
order by z
select floor(b_j/.1)*.1 as mag_B,count(*) as n
group by floor(b_j/.1)*.1
order by mag_B
