ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs ; Morphology Keywords: catalogs - cosmology: dark matter - galaxies: dwarf - galaxies: kinematics and dynamics Abstract: We study different incarnations of the Tully-Fisher (TF) relation for the Local Volume (LV) galaxies taken from Updated Nearby Galaxy Catalog. The UNGC sample contains 656 galaxies with W50 HI-line-width estimates, mostly belonging to low-mass dwarfs. Of them, 296 objects have distances measured with accuracies better than 10%. For the sample of 331 LV galaxies having baryonic masses logMbar>5.8logM, we obtain a relation logMbar=2.49logW50+3.97 with an observed scatter of 0.38dex. The largest factors affecting the scatter are observational errors in K-band magnitudes and W50 line widths for the tiny dwarfs, as well as uncertainty of their inclinations. We find that accounting for the surface brightness of the LV galaxies or their gas fraction, specific star-formation rate, or isolation index does not essentially reduce the observed scatter on the baryonic TF diagram. We also notice that a sample of 71 dSph satellites of the Milky Way and M31 with a known stellar velocity dispersion σ* tends to follow nearly the same bTF relation, having slightly lower masses than that of late-type dwarfs. Description: The raw observational data on 402 galaxies of the LV, including 71 dSphs, are compiled in Table 5. File Summary:

Note (1): According to the classification by de Vaucouleurs et al. 1976 (Cat. VII/112) defined as follows: -3 = S0-; -2 = S00; -1 = S0+; 1 = Sa; 2 = Sab; 3 = Sb; 4 = Sbc; 5 = Sc; 6 = Scd; 7 = Sd; 8 = Sdm; 9 = Sm; 10 = Im. Note (2): Corresponding to the Holmberg isophote (∼26.5mag/arcsec2) in B band. Note (3): The main source of W50 data was LEDA, as well as the HI Parkes All-Sky Survey (HIPASS; Koribalski et al. 2004, Cat. J/AJ/128/16; Meyer et al. 2004, Cat. VIII/73; Wong et al. 2006, Cat. VIII/89; Staveley-Smith et al. 2016, Cat. J/AJ/151/52) and the Arecibo Legacy Fast ALFA Survey (ALFALFA; Giovanelli et al. 2005AJ....130.2598G; Haynes et al. 2011, Cat. J/AJ/142/170). The references to individual W50 measurements are presented in the Local Volume Galaxies (LVG) database (Kaisina et al. 2012AstBu..67..115K, Note (4): Galaxy has only a dispersion and thus its W50 was determined by a relation Gaussian function W*=2{sqrt}(2ln2)*σ*. Note (5): Methods used to obtain the distance are defined as follows: TRGB = By the Tip of the Red Giant Branch; Cep = From the Cepheid luminosity; mem = From galaxy membership in known groups with measured distances of other members; CMD = By the Color Magnitude Diagram using some prominent features or simultaneous distance and stellar population fitting; HB = By the Horizontal Branch; RR = From the luminosity of RR Lyrae stars. Note (6): Logarithm of baryonic mass with parameters Υ*=0.60,η=1.33. See text Section 6 for additional details.
