The Shallow Survey was undertaken mostly in the first year of operations and continues during full moon periods. Each visit measures objects from 9 to 17 mag in all six bands. It provides the overall calibration of the Southern Sky Survey and allows the survey to be tied to the Hipparcos and Tycho catalogs (and other photometric systems established in the southern hemisphere, such as APASS). The Main Survey will be calibrated from Shallow Survey observations of spectrophotometric standards.
