We present a set of 376 photometrically calibrated HII regions in the nearby late-type spiral galaxy NGC 628. We have studies the mean velocity and velocity dispersion for the H-alpha-emitting gas in NGC 628 and found with widely distributed star formation in the disc plane. The H-alpha emission from the HII regions dominates any emission from the diffuse component in this galaxy.
