  <dc:description>The Sloan Digital Sky Survey  (SDSS) is a comprehensive survey of the northern sky. This dataset contains a subset of this survey, of 60247 objects classified as galaxies, it includes a CSV file with a collection of information and a set of files for each object, namely JPG image files, FITS and spectra data. This dataset is used to train and explore the astromlp-models collection of deep learning models for galaxies characterisation.

The dataset includes a CSV data file where each row is an object from the SDSS database, and with the following columns (note that some data may not be available for all objects):

	objid: unique SDSS object identifier 
	mjd: MJD of observation
	plate: plate identifier
	tile: tile identifier
	fiberid: fiber identifier
	run: run number
	rerun: rerun number
	camcol: camera column
	field: field number
	ra: right ascension
	dec: declination
	class: spectroscopic class (only objetcs with GALAXY are included)
	subclass: spectroscopic subclass
	modelMag_u: better of DeV/Exp magnitude fit for band u
	modelMag_g: better of DeV/Exp magnitude fit for band g
	modelMag_r: better of DeV/Exp magnitude fit for band r
	modelMag_i: better of DeV/Exp magnitude fit for band i
	modelMag_z: better of DeV/Exp magnitude fit for band z
	redshift: final redshift from SDSS data z
	stellarmass: stellar mass extracted from the eBOSS Firefly catalog
	w1mag: WISE W1 "standard" aperture magnitude
	w2mag: WISE W2 "standard" aperture magnitude
	w3mag: WISE W3 "standard" aperture magnitude
	w4mag: WISE W4 "standard" aperture magnitude
	gz2c_f: Galaxy Zoo 2 classification from Willett et al 2013
	gz2c_s: simplified version of Galaxy Zoo 2 classification (labels set)

Besides the CSV file a set of directories are included in the dataset, in each directory you'll find a list of files named after the objid column from the CSV file, with the corresponding data, the following directories tree is available:

├── data.csv
├── fits
├── img
├── spectra
└── ssel

Where, each directory contains:

	img: RGB images from the object in JPEG format, 150x150 pixels, generated using the SkyServer DR16 API
	fits: FITS data subsets around the object across the u, g, r, i, z bands; cut is done using the ImageCutter library
	spectra: full best fit spectra data from SDSS between 4000 and 9000 wavelengths
	ssel: best fit spectra data from SDSS for specific selected intervals of wavelengths discussed by Sánchez Almeida 2010
