The Weak Lensing Deblending Package provides a framework to produce fast simulations and analysis for weak gravitational lensing. 

This software was primarily developed to study the effects of overlapping sources on shear estimation, photometric redshift algorithms, and deblending algorithms. Users can run their own simulations (of LSST and other surveys) or, else download the galaxy catalog and simulation outputs to use with their own code or analyze with the tools provided here.

The code is hosted on github. Please use the github issue tracker to let us know about any issues you have with installing or running this code, or to request new features.
