GOODS Morphological Catalog

We present below the morphological catalogs of galaxies in the GOODS North and South fields, as determined visually by R. S. Ellis with a magnitude limit from HST/ACS imaging of z < 22.5 (AB). These catalogs are described in detail in Bundy et al. 2005, and we request that this paper be cited when these catalogs are used. CAS parameters from C. J. Conselice are available for GOODS-N.

Morphological Type
The classification type is based on the following scale: -2=Star, -1=Compact, 0=E, 1=E/S0, 2=S0, 3=Sab, 4=S, 5=Scd, 6=Irr, 7=Unclass, 8=Merger, 9=Fault, -9=Fault. For more information on this scale see Brinchmann et al. 1998.

Data Fields
Both the ASCII and FITS table versions contain the same data fields.
