The field of the GRB 111228A (Ukwatta et al. GCN 12737) was observed
with the SDSS survey (Abazajian et al. 2009, ApJS, 182, 543).

Within 2.2 arcseconds of the XRT coordinates, SDSS detected a galaxy namely
SDSS J100015.45+181755.1. The exact coordinates of the galaxy are given as
RA : 150.06439037, DEC : +18.29865952 (J2000).

SDSS magnitudes of the galaxy are  :

u = 21.99 +/- 0.20
g = 21.34 +/- 0.05
r ��= 20.90 +/- 0.05
i ��= 20.72 +/- 0.06
z = 20.72 +/- 0.21

SDSS also provides a photometric redshift for the galaxy as z =
0.192859 +/- 0.04821.
