The Spitzer Extended Deep Survey (SEDS) as a deep and wide mid-infrared (MIR) survey project provides a sample of 500 000+ sources spreading 1.46 square degree and a depth of 26 AB mag (3σ). Combining with the previous available data, we build a PSF-matched multi-wavelength photometry catalog from u band to 8 µm. We fit the SEDS galaxies spectral energy distributions by the local galaxy templates. The results show that the SEDS galaxy can be fitted well, indicating the high redshift galaxy (z ∼ 1) shares the same templates with the local galaxies. This study would facilitate the further study of the galaxy luminosity and high redshift mass function
