PhotozPHOTO The photometrically estimated redshifts for all objects in the Galaxy view.
Estimation is based on a robust fit on spectroscopically observed objects with similar colors and inclination angle.
Please see the Photometric Redshifts entry in Algorithms for more information about this table.
NOTE: This table may be empty initially because the photoz values are computed in a separate calculation after the main data release.
