Abstract (from CDS):

We present a technique for the estimation of photometric redshifts based on feed-forward neural networks. The Multilayer Perceptron (MLP) Artificial Neural Network is used to predict photometric redshifts in the HDF-S from an ultra deep-multicolor catalog. Various possible approaches for the training of the neural network are explored, including the deepest and most complete spectroscopic redshift catalog currently available (the Hubble Deep Field North dataset) and models of the spectral energy distribution of galaxies available in the literature. The MLP can be trained on observed data, theoretical data and mixed samples. The prediction of the method is tested on the spectroscopic sample in the HDF-S (44 galaxies). Over the entire redshift range, 0.1<z<3.5, the agreement between the photometric and spectroscopic redshifts in the HDF-S is good: the training on mixed data produces σztest≃0.11, showing that model libraries together with observed data provide a sufficiently complete description of the galaxy population. The neural system capability is also tested in a low redshift regime, 0<z<0.4, using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release One (DR1) spectroscopic sample. The resulting accuracy on 88108 galaxies is σztest≃0.022. Inputs other than galaxy colors - such as morphology, angular size and surface brightness - may be easily incorporated in the neural network technique. An important feature, in view of the application of the technique to large databases, is the computational speed: in the evaluation phase, redshifts of 105 galaxies are estimated in few seconds.

within radius arcsec The VizieR photometry tool allows for easy visualization of photometry points extracted around the Simbad position from photometry-enabled catalogues in VizieR.
The search radius has to be specified by the user. It is currently limited to a maximum of 30 arcsec. It depends mostly on the precision or quality of the coordinates (SIMBAD and VizieR catalogs), the resolution of the images from which the sources were extracted, source extent, and source crowding.
Suggestions are: crowded field: 0.5 to 1.5 arcsec, 3 arcsec otherwise; uncertain coordinates (SIMBAD quality E or coordinates without reference): 5 to 30 arsec (risky!).
