Value Added Catalogs

In addition to the primary SDSS photometry and spectroscopy, there are a few extra catalogs created by our collaborators that are distributed through the SAS. These Value-Added Catalogs (VACs) are listed below, and include catalogs that were released in earlier data releases.

Classification of intermediate redshift emission line galaxies

Scientific Analysis Catalog

Catalog with classifications of eBOSS z<0.8 emission line galaxies.

This value added catalog contains the outcomes of a Random Forest Classifier for classifying z<0.8 emission line galaxies into subtypes of star-forming galaxies, composites, AGNs and LINERs with accuracies of 93.7%, 68.3%, 70.5% and 64.4%, respectively. The classification code is available here, and more details of this catalog are described in Zhang et al. (2019).
