Our data, in the CMT1 Washington photometric system, reach an approximate limiting magnitude of T1∼R∼22 and contain magnitudes, colors, and coordinates for more than 100,000 objects. Of these, the vast majority (about 99%) are either foreground stars or faint background galaxies; the old-halo globular clusters make up the remaining tiny fraction of the sample. Our database, however, provides the material for understanding the large-scale features of the GCS, including its metallicity distribution (MDF), luminosity distribution, and spatial structure. Description: The observations were obtained with the Big Throughput Camera (BTC) at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory 4m telescope, during two nights in 1998 (May 11-13) and two nights in 1999 (May 26-28).
