Abstract: We present the results of the first attempt to model an all--sky survey using a genetic algorithm. The derived parameters represent global fits with statistically significant star counts from fields distributed uniformly over most of the sky. We find evidence that the parameterization of the Thick Disk may be variable with direction.
