ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs ; YSOs ; H II regions ; Radio sources ; Radio lines ; Infrared sources ; Protostars ; Stars, pre-main sequence ; Masers ; Molecular clouds ; Globules ; Nebulae, dark ; Radial velocities Abstract: This Catalog of Star-Forming Regions in the Galaxy contains coordinates and fluxes of young objects in the radio and infrared, as well as data on the radial velocities of recombination and molecular lines, for more than three thousand star-forming regions. In addition to photometric and kinematic data, we present information on diffuse and reflecting nebulae, dark and molecular clouds, and other objects related to young stars. The catalog consists of two parts. The main catalog lists star-forming regions in order of Galactic longitude and is supplemented by analogous information for star-forming regions in complexes of dark clouds with large angular sizes that are closest to the Sun. In our preliminary study of the catalog data using a formal classification of the star-forming regions, we subdivided these objects into several classes and characterized them as being populated primarily by massive or low-mass stars at early or late stages of the star-formation process. We also distinguish between relatively nearby and distant complexes. File Summary:

Note (1): Type of source as follows: D = dark cloud or globule, O = optical nebula or star R = radio source IR = infrared source M = molecular cloud Note (2): For Molecular data (Type="M"): name of molecule escorted by 'A' (absorption) or 'E' (emission) in case of necessity; maser molecular-line escorted by 'E'. Note (3): Name of source component or type of the source. - When Type="R" or "M": name or designation of small sources according to original paper. The column may contain some morphological determination of source such as 'ridge', 'core', 'halo', 'envelope', etc., or note such as 'diff.emission','peak', 'cloud', 'globule' etc, taken from original paper; molecular outflow is designated by 'outflow'; - When Type="R", the symbols enclosed in brackets describe ultra-compact (UC) HII region morphology class: <CH> = core-halo, <SH> = shell, <I> = irregularly shaped, <SP> = spherical, <C> = cometary shaped, <U> = unresolved, <MP> = multiply peaked, <AL> = arclike region, <P> = partially extended, <D> = double peaked, <G> = Gaussian; - When Type="IR", the symbols enclosed in brackets describe evolutionary class of object, such as: <0> = Class 0, <1> = Class 1, <2> = Class 2, <3> = Class 3, Object types can be also described as: st_emb = star embedded star_Ha = Ha emission star star_TT = T Tau star rfl_n. = reflection nebula em_n. = emission nebula st+neb = nebulous star HH_obj = Herbig-Haro object bipolar_n = bipolar nebula red_star = red star Note (4): Effective band of spectrum: - when Type="R" or "M": frequency, in GHz. - when Type="IR", "O" or "D": wavelength, in µm Note (5): Note on Flux: - when Type="M", "I" means maser integrated flux in; - the symbol ":" means flux uncertain; - the symbol "n" means negative flux. Note (7): Note on Size and Beam: In the case of 'outflow' the column contains the sizes of outflow extensions of the red and of the blue lobes at maximum velocities. Note (8): Note on Size1: T = flux integrated along the total source E = indication that source is extended and flux is related to part of it P = point source for this beam Note (9): Central radial velocity of the line (LSR) and its width in km/s, separated by semicolon. If several radial velocities are observed, they are separated by commas, and its widths are separated from them by semicolons. If multiple overlapping velocities are observed, lower and upper limits for velocity ranges are given, separated by a slash [/]. When Type="O", the data refer generally to hydrogen recombination lines H(alpha). When Type="R" type the data refer to hydrogen radio recombination lines. When Type="M" type the data refer to the molecule line. In the case of numerous peaks in maser emission, the minimum and maximum velocities of the emission are presented as V(min)/V(max). Velocity of the maximum peak flux, minimum and maximum velocities of the emission are given as Vp,V(min)/V(max); When Type="M", in case of 'outflow', the maximum velocities in blue and red lobes of are given as V(min)/V(max). In the case of 'M' the symbol ']' after the line width means that the line width includes the line wings.
