Mock Catalog

(catalog of simulated astronomical bodies)

A Mock Catalog is a catalog based upon simulated astronomy, e.g., a catalog of stars in a simulated Galaxy or Globular Cluster (GC), or a catalog of galaxies in a simulated Galaxy Cluster (CL). Such a catalog allows evaluation of the model as well as evaluation of analysis and detection techniques. Programs have been developed that generate such catalogs on demand, with given criteria.
