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.

eBOSS DR16 Large-scale structure LRG catalogs

Scientific Analysis Catalog

Large-scale structure catalog based on eBOSS DR16 luminous red galaxies.

This VAC is described in full at


This VAC contains the eBOSS large-scale structure catalogues for DR16 luminous red galaxies (LRGs), and consists of the data and randoms catalogues that underpin the cosmological analyses from the eBOSS team. These catalogues contain all the data and necessary information (window function, systematic quantities, completeness estimates and corrections for close-pairs and redshift failures) to reproduce the team's clustering measurements. The VAC is described in detail in Ross et al. (2020), and on the website linked above. Older versions of this VAC based on previous data releases are still available, and linked on the website above. We always recommend that you use the latest version of this VAC.
