ADC_Keywords: Gamma rays Keywords: catalogs; gamma-ray burst: general Abstract: InterPlanetary Network (IPN) data are presented for the gamma-ray bursts in the second Fermi Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor (GBM) catalog. Of the 462 bursts in that catalog between 2010 July 12 and 2012 July 11, 428, or 93%, were observed by at least 1 other instrument in the 9-spacecraft IPN. Of the 428, the localizations of 165 could be improved by triangulation. For these bursts, triangulation gives one or more annuli whose half-widths vary between about 2'.3° and 16°, depending on the peak flux, fluence, time history, arrival direction, and the distance between the spacecraft. We compare the IPN localizations with the GBM 1σ, 2σ, and 3σ error contours and find good agreement between them. The IPN 3σ error boxes have areas between about 8 square arcminutes and 380 square degrees, and are an average of 2500 times smaller than the corresponding GBM 3σ localizations. We identify four bursts in the IPN/GBM sample whose origins were given as "uncertain," but may in fact be cosmic. This leads to an estimate of over 99% completeness for the GBM catalog. Description: The triangulation technique utilized for the present catalog is identical to that used for the first IPN/GBM catalog; the details may be found in Hurley+ (2013, J/ApJS/207/39). Also, the missions and experiments comprising the InterPlanetary Network (IPN) are the same. The IPN consisted of Konus-Wind, at up to approximately 5light-seconds from Earth; Mars Odyssey, in orbit around Mars at up to 1250light-seconds from Earth; the International Gamma-Ray Laboratory (INTEGRAL), in an eccentric Earth orbit at up to 0.5light-seconds from Earth; Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry, and Ranging mission (MESSENGER), in an eccentric orbit around Mercury beginning 2011 March 18, up to 690 light-seconds from Earth; and Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI), Swift, Fermi, Suzaku, and AGILE, all in low-Earth orbit.

Note (1): Universal time is the trigger time of a near-Earth spacecraft . Note (2): UNCERT = Four events were listed as UNCERTAIN in the GBM catalog -- GBM: UNCERT10102526 UNCERT11092348 UNCERT11123162 UNCERT12011729; however, they are likely to be valid cosmic events. Note (3): Instruments observing GBM as follows: AGI = Astro-rivelatore Gamma a Immagini LEggero (AGILE); INT = International Gamma-Ray Laboratory; Kon = Konus-Wind; MES = Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry, and Ranging mission; MO = Mars Odyssey; RHE = Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager; Suz = Suzaku; Swi = Swift. Note (4): Flags on Observation Instrument(s) as follows: d = Burst was outside the coded field of view of the BAT, and not localized by it; e = Burst was localized by Swift-BAT; IPN triangulation cannot improve on this localization; f = Burst was localized by INTEGRAL-IBIS; IPN triangulation cannot improve on this localization. Note (5): n = 101127093 has been added by CDS in this table to match the object listed in tables 5 and 6.
