This is especially true for the 3rd Galactic quadrant, where the stellar population was extensively investigated beyond 10kpc, revealing details about the warped geometry of the thin and thick disks and outer arm. The 4th Galactic quadrant offers even better opportunity to follow the distribution of the young stellar populace to a large distance, since the line of sight is parallel to the largest single segment of a spiral arm seen from our position in the Galaxy: the Carina spiral feature. This paper further contributes to the study of the structure of the Galactic disk in the direction of Carina field utilizing homogeneous photometric distances of a sample of about 600 bright early-type stars seen in this direction up to 6kpc. The derived stellar distances are based on uvbyβ photometry. All O and B type stars with uvbyβ data presently available are included in the study. Description: Our sample consists of about 600 stars earlier than A0 spectral type with available uvbyβ photometry listed in at least one of the HD, CPD, PPM and LS catalogs. File Summary:
