Stars were selected using r-i, i-z, r-z, z-J, and z-W1 colors, and SDSS, WISE, and 2MASS astrometry was combined to compute proper motions. The resulting 3,518,150 stars were augmented with proper motions for 5,216,854 earlier type stars from the combined SDSS and United States Naval Observatory B1.0 catalog (USNO-B). We used SDSS+USNO-B proper motions to determine the best criteria for selecting a clean sample of stars. Only stars whose proper motions were greater than their 2-sigma uncertainty were included. Our Motion Verified Red Stars (MoVeRS) catalog is available through SDSS CasJobs and VizieR. File Summary:

Note (1): Defined as .5*(W1MJDMAX-W1MJDMIN) Note (2): see section 3.3. The values are: 000: SDSS and USNO-B proper motions are available 011: SDSS and WISE were used to calculate the proper motion 110: 2MASS and SDSS were used to calculate the proper motion 111: all 3 surveys were used in the linear filt to calculate the proper motion Note (3): the USE flag means: 1 = our proper motion 2 = Munn et al. (2004AJ....127.3034M, M04) proper motion 3 = both proper motions Note (4): Values taken from Munn et al. (2004AJ....127.3034M, erratum in 2008, AJ, 136, 895). Note (5): impossible values existing in the fits version are here removed: * magnitudes>100; magnitude errors≥10mag were replaced by 9.999mag * distances >1,000,000arcsec were replaced by 99.999.
