Here we examine 504 supernovae with types assigned based on their spectra that are located in nearby (z<0.06) galaxies for which we have constructed surface photometry from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The distributions of the thermonuclear supernovae (SNe Ia) and some varieties of core-collapse supernovae (SNe II and SNe Ib) follow the galaxy light, but the SNe Ic (like LGRBs) are much more likely to erupt in the brightest regions of their hosts. Description: Our sample was drawn from 4603 SN discoveries reported to the International Astronomical Union (IAU) through 2008 March 3, collected in the Asiago Supernova Catalog (Barbon et al. 1999, Cat. B/sn). We selected SNe in hosts occurring inside SDSS DR6 coverage with z<0.06. File Summary:

Note (1): We list data values for SN Ib/Ic and other ambiguously typed SN as well as SN classified from light curves, even though they are not included in plots in the main text. Each SN type plotted in this Paper includes all subtypes and SN with peculiar ("pec") designations. These subtypes include broad-lined ("Ib-bl") for SN Ic and linear ("IIL"), plateau ("IIP"), with narrow emission lines ("IIn"), and the transitional type ("IIb") for SNII. Note (2): the asterisk (*) indicates a classification made using a light curve; the other symbols indicate an uncertainty in the classification. Note (3): The sum of counts registered in all pixels with fewer counts than measured at the SN location divided by the sum of all counts associated with the galaxy. See section 3.1 for additional details. Note (4): For galaxies with bulges, we make an additional calculation of the fractional flux after removing bulge light by replacing pixels values inside a circular region encompassing the bulge-dominated center with the mean of the perimeter pixel values.
