ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, nearby ; Photometry, infrared ; Surveys Keywords: galaxies: photometry - infrared: galaxies - surveys Abstract: The survey description and the near-, mid-, and far-infrared flux properties are presented for the 258 galaxies in the Local Volume Legacy (LVL). LVL is a Spitzer Space Telescope legacy program that surveys the local universe out to 11Mpc, built upon a foundation of ultraviolet, Hα, and Hubble Space Telescope imaging from 11HUGS (11Mpc Hα and Ultraviolet Galaxy Survey, Cat. J/ApJS/178/247) and ANGST (ACS Nearby Galaxy Survey Treasury, 2009ApJS..183...67D). LVL covers an unbiased, representative, and statistically robust sample of nearby star-forming galaxies, exploiting the highest extragalactic spatial resolution achievable with Spitzer. Description: New Spitzer IRAC observations were obtained for 180 LVL galaxies. New Spitzer MIPS observations were obtained for 201 LVL galaxies. Archival IRAC and MIPS data are utilized for 78 (IRAC) and 57 (MIPS) galaxies. File Summary:

Global notes: Note (G1): Flag as follows: a = Infrared photometry for the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds are from Bernard et al. (2008AJ....136..919B) and Gordon et al. (2009, in prep), respectively. b = NGC 1800 and MCG-05-13-004 spatially overlap so separate photometry for MCG-05-13-004 is not provided. c = The bright cores of NGC 3034 (M82) and NGC 0253 produce particularly challenging Spitzer data, including the effects of saturation at 24 micron. The 24 micron flux densities are approximated from IRAS data via νfν(24um)=νfν(25um), and the data at other wavelengths should be used with caution. d = Only 4.5 and 8.0 micron data were obtained for IC 5152. e = IRAC imaging taken from the Spitzer archives. f = MIPS imaging taken from the Spitzer archives.
