In this work, we present a catalog of DA white dwarfs (DAWDs) from the entire pilot survey. We outline a new algorithm for the selection of white dwarfs (WDs) by fitting Sersic profiles to the Balmer Hβ, Hγ, and Hδ lines of the spectra, and calculating the equivalent width of the CaII K line. Two thousand nine hundred sixty-four candidates are selected by constraining the fitting parameters and the equivalent width of the CaII K line. All the spectra of candidates are visually inspected. We identify 230 DAWDs (59 of which are already included in the Villanova and SDSS WD catalogs), 20 of which are DAWDs with non-degenerate companions. In addition, 128 candidates are classified as DAWDs/subdwarfs, which means the classifications are ambiguous. The result is consistent with the expected DAWD number estimated based on the LEGUE target selection algorithm. Description: A total of ∼640000 objects from the LAMOST pilot survey have recently been released (Luo et al., 2012RAA....12.1243L). Here, we report on 230 spectroscopically identified DA white dwarfs from the LAMOST pilot survey. In addition, 128 candidates are classified as DA white dwarfs/subdwarfs. File Summary:

Note (1): Come from SDSS photometry or Xuyi survey. Note (2): From the UCAC3 catalog (Zacharias et al., 2009, cat. I/315; obsoleted by Zacharias et al. 2012, cat. I/322). Note (3): k = Kp magnitude from Kepler Input Catalog (Brown et al., 2011, cat. J/AJ/142/112, and V/133) is presented instead of V magnitude. Note (4): According to Sion et al. (1983ApJ...269..253S), the classification consists of two parts, the "DA" type and the subtype index which is a temperature index corresponding to 50,400/T. This temperature index is determined by visually comparing the target spectrum with spectra of different temperature indices in the atlas of Wesemael et al. (1993PASP..105..761W) and the SDSS DR4 WD catalog (Eisenstein et al. 2006, cat. J/ApJS/167/40). A DA white dwarf with a companion is denoted as "DA+companion." If the spectral type of the companion is identifiable, i.e., an M star, the classification is "DA+M." A colon means the identification is uncertain. The DA white dwarf/subdwarf targets are classified as "DA:/SD."Note (5): Other catalogs as follows: Note (5): Other catalogs as follows: v = a DA white dwarf is in Villanova white dwarf catalog (McCook & Sion, 2008, cat. III/235); s = a DA white dwarf is in SDSS DR7 white dwarf catalog (Kleinman et al., 2013, cat. J/ApJS/204/5).
