Using the reconstructed galaxy catalogues, we obtain the precision of 1.3–2.2 per cent for DA(z)/rd and 2.1–6.0 per cent for H(z)rd. To quantify the gain from the tomographic information, we compare the constraints on the cosmological parameters using our nine-bin BAO measurements, the consensus three-bin BAO and redshift space distortion measurements at three effective redshifts in Alam et al., and the non-tomographic (one-bin) BAO measurement at a single effective redshift. Comparing the nine-bin with one-bin constraint result, it can improve the dark energy Figure of Merit by a factor of 1.24 for the Chevallier–Polarski–Linder parametrization for equation-of-state parameter wDE.
