One of these is the All Digital HI catalog which contains an amalgam of information from new data and old. The new data result from observations with Arecibo and Parkes Telescopes and with the Green Bank Telescope, including continuing input since the award of the NRAO Cosmic Flows Large Program. The old data have been collected from archives, wherever available, particularly the Cornell University Digital HI Archive, the Nancay Telescope extragalactic HI archive, and the Australia Telescope HI archive. The catalog currently contains information on ∼15000 profiles relating to ∼13000 galaxies. The channel-flux per channel files, from whatever source, is carried through a common pipeline. The derived parameter of greatest interest is Wm50, the profile width at 50% of the mean flux. After appropriate adjustment, the parameter Wmx is derived, the line width that statistically approximates the peak-to-peak maximum rotation velocity before correction for inclination, 2Vmaxsini. Description: The single-beam Arecibo observations of 330 galaxies were undertaken in two sessions: 1999 October and 2001 April. The single-beam Robert C. Byrd GBT observations were carried out in the course of two programs, one program from 2001 to 2002 and one large project beginning from 2006 February and continuing through 2009 May. Roughly, 1000 galaxies have been observed between these programs. A first observing run during 2009 January-February has been completed culminating in observations of 58 galaxies with the Parkes Telescope. File Summary:
