The WINGS-SPE sample consists of 48 clusters, 22 of which are in the southern sky and 26 in the north. The main goals of this spectroscopic survey are: (1) to study the dynamics and kinematics of the WINGS clusters and their constituent galaxies, (2) to explore the link between the spectral properties and the morphological evolution in different density environments and across a wide range of cluster X-ray luminosities and optical properties. We present redshift measurements for 6137 galaxies. The WINGS-SPE has a 30% overlap with previously published data sets, allowing us both to perform a complete comparison with the literature and to extend the catalogs. For each galaxy identifier, equatorial coordinates, redshift, errors, correlation factor and membership are given. File Summary:
