Description: Galaxia: a code to generate a synthetic survey of the Milky Way. Galaxia is a code written in C++ to generate a synthetic survey of the Milky Way. One can either use an analytic model or an N-body model. The present version of the code implements the Besancon analytical model of the galaxy. For the stellar halo, one has the additional option of using N-body simulations of Bullock and Johnston in which the halo is build up purely by accretion of satellite galaxies. The program has been compiled and tested using GNU C++ compiler on both Linux and Mac OS X.
