ADC_Keywords: Radial velocities ; Galaxy catalogs ; H I data Keywords: galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: peculiar Abstract: Tully-Fisher and Dn-sigma distances, radial velocities, and associated catalog and observational data for the spiral, irregular, and elliptical galaxies that comprise the Mark 3 catalog are given in 5 different kinds of tables for seven separate data sets. Users interested only in the resulting distances need use only the files listed in sections 3 (Grouped spiral distance files), 4 (Elliptical galaxy distance files), and 5 (Comparison of galaxy distances). Introduction: The Mark III Catalog of Galaxy Peculiar Velocities comprises five different types of data files. 1. Basic Observational and Catalog Data 2. Individual Galaxy TF and Dn-sigma Distances 3. Grouped Spiral Galaxy TF Distances 4. Elliptical Galaxy Distances as in the Mark II 5. Comparison of Spiral Galaxy Distances 1. The Basic Data files are: a. Aaronson et al. Field, (359 galaxies; 1982ApJ...258...64A): a82file1.dat, a82file2.dat, a82file3.dat b. Mathewson et al. 1992 (1355 galaxies; mat): matfile1.dat, matfile2.dat, matfile3.dat c. Willick 1991, Perseus-Pisces sample (383 galaxies; w91pp): d. Willick 1991, Cluster galaxy sample (156 galaxies; w91cl): The basic data for all 539 objects in the w91 sample are given in the following files: w91file1.dat, w91file2.dat, w91file3.dat Some galaxies are duplicates; see below for details. e. Courteau-Faber 1993 (326 galaxies; cf): cffile1.dat, cffile2.dat, cffile3.dat f. Han-Mould et al. 1992+, Cluster galaxy sample (433 galaxies; hmcl): The basic data for all 433 galaxies the the hm sample are given in the following files: hmfile1.dat, hmfile3.dat, hmfile2.dat Some galaxies are duplicates; see below for details. 2. The Individual Spiral Galaxy Distances Files are: (See notes for detailed descriptions of how the w91pp, w91cl, hmcl and cf distance files correspond to the galaxies in the w91file*, hmfile*, and cffile* Basic Data files.) a. Aaronson et al. Field, (359 galaxies; 1982ApJ...258...64A): a82_s b. Mathewson et al. 1992 (1355 galaxies; mat): mat_s c. Willick 1991, Perseus-Pisces sample (326 galaxies; w91pp): w91pp_s.dat d. Willick 1991, Cluster galaxy sample (156 galaxies; w91cl): w91cl_s.dat e. Courteau-Faber 1993 (321 galaxies; cf): cf_s.dat f. Han-Mould et al. 1992+, all cluster galaxies (427 galaxies; hmcl): hmcl_s.dat 3. The Grouped Spiral Galaxy Distance Files are: (Note: Group numbers in the wcf group (merged w91pp and cf) data file correspond to those in the w91pp and cf individual galaxy files. The hmw group file (merged w91cl and hmcl, 10 northern clusters only, cf. Willick et al. 1995) does not correspond to any individual galaxy distance file.) a. Aaronson et al. Field, (67 groups; 1982ApJ...258...64A): a82_g b. Mathewson et al. 1992 (277 groups; mat): mat_g c. Willick 1991, Perseus-Pisces sample (63 groups; w91pp): w91pp_g d. Willick 1991, Cluster galaxy sample (11 groups; w91cl): w91cl_g e. Courteau-Faber 1993 jointly grouped with Willick 1991 (65 groups; wcf): wcf_g f. Han-Mould et al. 1992+, all cluster galaxies (36 groups; hmcl): hmcl_g g. Combined hmcl and w91cl distances for the 10 northern clusters in common between the two samples (10 groups; hmw): hmw_g 4. Elliptical Galaxy Distance Files are: a. The Basic Data for the Mark II elliptical galaxy data: egalf1.dat b. The grouped data for the Mark II elliptical galaxy data, normalized in distance to the full spiral galaxy sample (a 3.5% revision in distances, such that the new distances are 0.965 times the old): egalf2.dat 5. Comparison of Galaxy Distances: This gives a direct comparison of predicted distance, magnitude and rotation velocity (eta) for 403 galaxies in common to two or more of the six spiral galaxy data sets: six data sets: match Disclaimer Note: IMPORTANT NOTE/DISCLAIMER In all cases, the Basic data files try to give the data as either published or otherwise given to us by the original author(s). In contrast, the Spiral Galaxy distance files contain data as homogenized by the authors' methodology. In many cases, value of radial velocity may differ by up to 50 km/sec (in the case of Local Group velocities), owing to both round-off errors in our computer programs and to differences in how to transform from one velocity reference frame to another. Similar, values of eta may differ in the last decimal place by up to 0.004. Only if much larger differences are found do the originators of these files wish the user to contact them. As errors are inevitable in a compendium of this size, notice of large errors found is much appreciated. File Summary:

Note (1): RC3num, RC2num, UGCnum and ESOnum are the record numbers for each galaxy in the direct access versions of the following four catalogs, as stored in Ultrix format by Burstein. RC2num and UGCnum galaxies have Burstein-Heiles galaxy counts and HI measures, from which reddenings can be calculated. RC3num and ESOnum have reddenings alone listed. RC2 catalog also has Holmberg (1958) stored for galaxies in common. A zero for any record number indicates galaxy not in that catalog. RC3num - RC3 (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1991), as electronically distributed by Harold Corwin (rc39.all version) RC2num - RC2 (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1976); original version from Ohio State, pre-1980. UGCnum - Uppsala General Catalogue (Nilson 1973); original version from Ohio State, pre-1980. This direct access catalog has 23 more objects than in original UGC, owing to inclusion of some UGCA objects. Also, many errors in original computer version have been corrected in this version. ESOnum - European Southern Observatory catalog. Culled from the full ESO catalog (Lauberts 1982) for only galaxy or galaxy(?) objects, 16,154 in all. Global ESO-LV (Lauberts-Valentijn 1989) data added to catalog for 14,083 galaxies in common. Likewise, Catnum is a record number uniquely assigned to each Aaronson et al. galaxy in the Tormen and Burstein (1995, ApJS 96, 123) analysis. Note (2): Galaxies were assigned to groups/clusters by original Aaronson et al. papers. [Note that these groups do not correspond to the Mark III groups formed as described by Willick et al. 1996.] Each group/cluster is assigned a numerical code in this table. The codes are: -1: NOT CLASSIFIED 60: N5566 GROUP 0: NOT ASSIGNED 61: GRUS 1: PISCES 62: N24/45 2: A 400 63: N134 3: A 539 64: N701/755 4: CANCER 65: N2336 5: A1367 66: N2841 6: COMA 67: N3079/U5459 7: Z74-23 68: N3184 8: HERCULES 69: N3521 9: PEGASUS 70: LEO TRIPLET 10: A2634/66 71: Can Van I 12: HYDRA 72: N5033 13: N3557 73: M51 14: CEN30 74: N5371 15: CEN45 75: N5364 16: ANTLIA 76: N5676 17: ESO508 77: N5866 18: PAVO 78: N6070 51: LOCAL CALIBRATORS 79: N7320/7331 52: VIRGO, MAIN CLUSTER 80: N7537/7541 53: N1023 54: ERIDANUS 55: FORNAX 56: LEO 57: URSA MAJOR 58: COMA I 59: VIRGO, SOUTH See note (1) for a82file1.dat Note (3): Two values of Burstein-Heiles E(B-V) are given for completeness. The value labeled _1 is for the present data. The value labeled _2 is what was used in the Mark II Catalog of Peculiar Velocities, as electronically distributed by Burstein starting in 1989. Differences of 0.02 to 0.06 in 4(E(B-V)) are evident, owing to issues explained in Burstein and Heiles (1984, ApJS 54, 33). Note (4): D_g is the fiducial diameter used in this analysis, based on the inclination-corrected diameter taken from the RC3 but making the following correction: log D_g = log D_25(RC3) - log(1-EXT/3.35), for Galactic extinction effects on diameter. It is important to note that Log D_g is in RC3 units of 0.1 arcmin. The Aaronson published value of log D_1 is given as LogD1 (bytes 52-55), 0.1 arcmin units. 9.99 is given if no value available. Note (5): Log_a/b1 is the log of the axial ratio as taken from the RC3 or, if not available there, taken from the original ESO data if an ESO galaxy. In the case where no independent axial ratio is in a catalog, an axial ratio was derived from the given Aaronson et al. inclination by inverting their formula. Log_a/b2 is the log of the axial ratio taken from Aaronson et al. Note (6): Inclin1 is the inclination of galaxy as given by RC3 axial ratio and the Aaronson et al. formulation (i.e., assuming q = 0.2), but without assuming a 3 deg correction to inclinat as applied by Aaronson et al. in their papers. Inclin2 is the inclination listed in the Aaronson et al. papers. Inclin3 is Inclin1 with 3 deg added to be in accord with Aaronson et al. formulation. InclinH comes from Han (1992) Ph. D. thesis on cluster galaxies. This value is null (0) for the field data set. Note (7): N = NGC (first name preference) I = IC (2nd preference) U = UGC (Nilson 1973) (3rd preference) E = ESO (Lauberts 1982) (3rd preference) Z = Zwicky, field+number (4th preference) A = Anonymous, RA (hr,min), Dec (deg) (4th preference) Note (8): RC2 galaxy types are given numerical codes in the RC2. The code used here slightly revises that code, giving 0 for true S0/a galaxies, and -7 for IO galaxies. Photometric Galaxy Type is the galaxy type assigned each galaxy based on the growth curve analysis of Tormen and Burstein. 1 = S0, Sa and Sab 2 = Sb and Sbc 3 = Sc and Scd 4 = Sd to Im

Note (1): See note (1) for a82file1.dat. Note (2): See note (2) for a82file1.dat. Note (3): Quality parameter for H_g: 1 = likely error less than 0.2 mag 2 = likely error 0.2 - 0.35 mag 3 = likely error in excess of 0.35 mag Note (4): H_g, the H magnitude at the log (D/D_g) = -0.5 diameter (see note (4) for a82file1 for definition of D_g) corrected only for Galactic extinction. The inclination correction dependence of H_g is determined in a separate paper by Willick et al. (1996). The corresponding published H-0.5 mag of Aaronson et al. is given as HmagAHM (bytes 59-64). Note (5): Heliocentric radial velocity taken primarily from original Aaronson et al. paper (1982ApJ...258...64A). For 23 galaxies, HelioV taken from NASA Extragalactic Database as of mid-1994. See Tormen and Burstein for details. Note (6): "Raw" HI rotation velocity width, km/sec. This is the value as would be observed without any inclination correction. See Tormen and Burstein for details. Note (7): Lg_DelVA is the original log (HI profile velocity width) as published by Aaronson et al. Note that this does not, in general, correspond to the value of eta in the file a82_s, because galaxy inclinations were recomputed for the Mark III catalog. See Willick et al. 1997. Note (8): The HI flux in the profile, expressed in units of Jy*km/s. The AHM papers typically quote an error of around 0.002 - 0.0025 Jy, which needs to be multiplied by the observed width to get an error for the flux. Given a typical width of 400 km/s, this translates to an observational error of 0.8 - 1 Jy*km/s.

Note (1): Catnum is a unique number assigned to each galaxy from a given data source in the Mark 3 catalogs. Mathewson Catnum values go from 1 to 1355. Note (2): The name of the galaxy as given by Mathewson et al. E = ESO catalog name, in a format e.g. E539-005 M = MCG catalog name, in a format e.g., M-1-2-14 = M0102014 A = Anonymous galaxy designation, with RA (hr,min) and Dec (deg) given N = NGC number U = UGC number Note (3): HelioV is the heliocentric radial velocity of the galaxy, as quoted by Mathewson. CMB_V is the radial velocity of the galaxy relative to the Cosmic Microwave Background, as quoted by Mathewson. (This will not, in general, be equal to the CMB velocities given in the individual galaxy distance files, because Mathewson et al. used a different conversion from heliocentric to CMB velocities.) Note (4): Bytes 70-73 (DMaj_MAT), 76-79 (DMin_MAT), 81-82 (Incl_MAT), 84-86 (PA_MAT), 89-92 (Lg(a/b)M), 95-98 (LogD_Mat) and 101-104 (LgD_Matc) are all values taken directly from the Mathewson et al. paper for the defined parameters. LogD_Mat is the I band diameter of the galaxy as observed by Mathewson et al. (i.e., before any corrections are applied). LogD_Matc is the I-band diameter as fully-corrected for Galactic extinction, inclination and K-corrections by Mathewson et al., but not the diameter used in the Mark 3 analysis. Note (5): Bytes 107-110 (Extinc_I) are I-band extinctions by the relation A_I = 1.68(E(B-V). Values of E(B-V) come from Burstein-Heiles as quoted in the RC3 (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1991, as electronically distributed by Harold Corwin [rc39.all version]). If no RC3 reddening given, then Mathewson value is used. Bytes 112-116 (ITMAT1) are the Mathewson observed I band magnitudes corrected only for the values of Extinc_I. In particular, these are not the same corrected I band magnitudes as quoted by Mathewson et al.

Note (1): Catnum is a unique number assigned to each galaxy from a given data source in the Mark 3 catalogs. Mathewson Catnum values go from 1 to 1355. Note (2): These parameters are galaxy colors determined by taking catalog values of magnitudes and the Mathewson et al. I band magnitude. These values are corrected for Galactic extinction only (i.e., no inclination correction has been applied). Bytes 7-11 (B-I_cat1) is the B-I total magnitude using RC3 B_T and MAT_I. Bytes 13-17 (B-I_cat2) is the B-I total magnitude using ESO-LV B_T and MAT_I. Bytes 19-23 (R-I_cat1) is the R-I total magnitude using ESO-LV R_T and MAT_I. RC3 (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1991, as electronically distributed by Harold Corwin [rc39.all version]). ESO catalog (Lauberts 1982). ESO-LV catalog - Surface Photometry Catalog of the ESO galaxies (Lauberts and Valentijn 1989). Note (3): Bytes 26-29 (LogD_ESO) is the Log of the ESO (Lauberts 1982) eye-estimated major axis diameter, in the usual 0.1 arcmin RC3 format. Bytes 32-35 (LogD_ELV) is the Log of the ESO-LV B mag D_25 major axis diameter, in the usual 0.1 arcmin RC3 format. Bytes 38-41 (Lg(a/b)E) is the log (a/b) of the galaxy as determined from the ESO-LV catalog. Note (4): These are differences between the various measures of axial ratios for each galaxy. Bytes 44-48 (D-a/b1) is the difference, log(a/b)_RC3 minus Log(a/b)_MAT. Bytes 50-54 (D-a/b2) is the difference, log(a/b)_ESO minus Log(a/b)_MAT. Bytes 56-60 (D-a/b3) is the difference, log(a/b)_ESO-LV minus Log(a/b)_MAT. Note (5): Given the problems found with the published Mathewson et al. axial ratios and inclinations, in the Mark3 catalog we have indicated those galaxies which have serious differences in their quoted axial ratios between Mathewson and the other galaxy catalogs. Byte 63: (qIncl1) This indicator is 1 if the Mathewson adopted inclination of the galaxy is less than 38 deg (the cutoff for the Mark3 sample). It is 0 otherwise. Byte 65: (qIncl2) This parameter results from testing how the quoted Mathewson et al. galaxy inclination compares with taking the value of log(a/b) quoted for the galaxy and determining inclination from that value. If the difference in inclination, abs(MAT minus a/b_inferred) is 4 deg or less, this quality parameter is 0; if the difference is 5-9 deg, it is 1; if the difference is 10-14 deg it is 2; if the difference is 15 deg or greater, it is 3. Byte 71 (qIncl3) This parameter tests for consistency between the axial ratio of the galaxy as given by the RC3 and that given by MAT. If the value in Bytes 44-48 (Diff_a/b1) is 0.30 or greater, this means strong disagreement in axial ratio measurements, and this parameter is 1. Otherwise, this parameter is zero. Note (6): Byte 67: (q_DelV) This parameter is zero if log (DeltaV/2) is 1.90 or greater (that is, rotation velocity 79 km/sec or more); it is 1 if log (DeltaV/2) is less than 1.90. Note (7): Byte 69 (f_type) This parameter is 1 if the Hubble type given in the RC3 includes the parameter P in such a way that the galaxy is identified as being peculiar. The parameter is two if there is no magnitude for the galaxy in either the RC3 or ESO-LV catalogs. The parameter is zero otherwise. Note (8): Bytes 73-75 (DB_type) Burstein developed a hierarchical numerical typing system for Morphological types. The system for the RC3, ESO and UGC catalogs is as follows: Burstein Code Number Classification 10 Ellipticals - normal 11 E - cD or '+' in RC3 12 Compact E's in RC3 14 E? in RC3 15 E-S0 100 S0 101 SB0 110 S0/a 111 SB0/a 120 Sa 121 SBa 122 Sa/SBa 130 Sa/b 131 SBa/b 132 Sa/b/SBa/b 140 Sb 141 SBb 142 Sb/SBb 150 Sb/Sc 151 SBb/c 152 Sb/c/SBb/c 160 Sc 161 SBc 162 Sc/SBc 170 Sc/d 171 SBc/d 172 Sc/d/SBc/d 180 Sd 181 SBd 190 Sd/Irr 191 SBd/Irr 192 SABd/Irr 195 Im 196 IBm 197 IABm 200 Irr 201 Dwarf Irr 210 Irregular labeled 'P' in RC3 (3 galaxies) 300 'S' 305 'SB' 310 'I?','IB?" 350 'L?' 400 Dwarf 500 Compacts 510 N 600 Multiple galaxies 610 Compact groups 620 Clusters 650 Doubles (general) 651 Doubles: E+E, E+S0, S0+S0 652 Doubles: E+S, S0+S 700 Peculiar 900 No galaxy class given If one takes the numerical type and divides by 10 and take the integer result, one gets: Code Number/10 General Classification 1 E and E/S0 10 All S0 11 All S0/a 12 All Sa 13 All Sa/b 14 All Sb 15 All Sb/Sc 16 All Sc 17 All Sc/Sd 18 All Sd 19 All Sd/Irr 20 All Irr 30 All non-divided classified types 40 Dwarf galaxies 50 Compact galaxies and N galaxies 60 Multiple systems 70 Peculiar galaxies 90 No galaxy class given Separately, one can test for SB, and S/SB galaxies by an appropriate manipulation of the code number.

Note (1): RC3num, UGCnum and ESOnum are the record numbers for each galaxy in the direct access versions of the following three catalogs, as stored in Ultrix format by Burstein. UGCnum galaxies have Burstein-Heiles galaxy counts and HI measures, from which reddenings can be calculated. RC3num and ESOnum have reddenings alone listed. RC3num - RC3 (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1991), as electronically distributed by Harold Corwin (rc39.all version) UGCnum - Uppsala General Catalogue (Nilson 1973); original version from Ohio State, pre-1980. This direct access catalog has 23 more objects than original UGC, owing to inclusion of some UGCA objects. Also, many typos in original computer version have been corrected in this version. The actual UGC number can differ from the storage number UGCnum, owing to the extra galaxies in the computer-readable UGC catalog. ESOnum - European Southern Observatory catalog. Culled from the full ESO catalog (Lauberts 1982) for only galaxy or galaxy(?) objects, 16,154 in all. Global ESO-LV (Lauberts-Valentijn 1989) data added to catalog for 14,083 galaxies in common. (There are no ESO galaxies in the W91 sample.) Note (2): Bytes 25-28 (Catnum) is a record number uniquely assigned to each Willick 1991 galaxy in the Mark III analysis. Willick Catnum values from 1 to 383 are the Perseus-Pisces (W91PP) sample; Willick Catnum values 384 to 539 are the Willick cluster (W91CL) galaxies. There are 26 galaxies in common between these two Willick samples: Catnum1 Catnum2 UGC Name 68 384 U00501 71 385 U00525 73 386 U00540 77 387 U00556 78 388 U00557 79 389 U00562 81 390 U00565 84 392 U00624 85 393 U00633 90 394 U00679 93 395 U00732 96 396 U00810 97 397 U00820 98 398 U00841 102 399 U00927 106 400 U00987 107 401 U01013 113 402 U01094 308 503 U12631 317 504 U12678 319 505 U12701 321 506 U12721 324 507 U12746 326 508 U12755 329 509 U12772 335 510 U12855 In addition, there are 57 Willick galaxies in the DATA (w91filex.lst) files that are not given distances in the mark3_ind* files. 40 of these galaxies are the Zwicky galaxies, which are not part of the UGC-diameter limited, complete sample used in the Mark III analysis papers (see Willick et al. 1996). 17 UGC galaxies were also excluded based on excessively large apparent peculiar velocities, indicating either bad magnitudes, bad inclination or bad HI velocity profile width. The 17 UGC galaxies excluded are given here: Catnum UGC Name (Galaxy excluded from distance files) 31 U00208 80 U00564 86 U00645 124 U01277 135 U01456 141 U01550 179 U01935 183 U01963 195 U02079 199 U02183 233 U12025 237 U12059 294 U12546 315 U12672 330 U12780 341 U12914 342 U12915 Note (3): N = NGC I = IC U = UGC (Nilson 1973) E = ESO (Lauberts 1982) C = Zwicky, field+number A = Anonymous, RA (hr,min), Dec (deg) Note (4): Coordinates are expressed in decimal numbers. RA is in hour, declination in degrees. To convert RA to standard hr,min,sec, one must successively convert the decimal part of this number to min and sec. Similarly for declination. Note (5): Bytes 69-74 (HelioV) is the heliocentric radial velocity of the galaxy, from sources as quoted by Willick (1991, Ph.D. thesis) Bytes 76-81 (CMB_V) is the radial velocity of the galaxy relative to the Cosmic Microwave Background, using the COBE heliocentric-to-CMB correction of 368.6 km/sec towards l=264.7deg, b=48.2deg. Note (6): Bytes 96-99 (Extinc_r): Burstein-Heiles reddenings E(B-V), converted to r-band extinctions by the relation A_r = 2.24(E(B-V) as derived by Courteau (1996, ApJ Suppl. 103, p. 363) for r band data. Note (7): Bytes 101-105 (w91_rmag) is the total extrapolated r magnitude for the galaxy, as observed. w91rmagc (bytes 107-111) is the corrected total magnitude obtained by subtracting the correction Extinc_r (bytes 96-99) from w91_rmag.

Note (1): RC3num, UGCnum and ESOnum are the record numbers for each galaxy in the direct access versions of the following three catalogs, as stored in Ultrix format by Burstein. UGCnum galaxies have Burstein-Heiles galaxy counts and HI measures, from which reddenings can be calculated. RC3num and ESOnum have reddenings alone listed. RC3num - RC3 (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1991), as electronically distributed by Harold Corwin (rc39.all version) UGCnum - Uppsala General Catalogue (Nilson 1973); original version from Ohio State, pre-1980. This direct access catalog has 23 more objects than in original UGC, owing to inclusion of some UGCA objects. Also, many errors in original computer version have been corrected in this version. Name - Here the Name is the UGC number of the galaxy. The actual UGC number can differ from the storage number UGCnum, owing to the extra galaxies in the computer-readable UGC catalog. ESOnum - European Southern Observatory catalog. Culled from the full ESO catalog (Lauberts 1982) for only galaxy or galaxy(?) objects, 16,154 in all. Global ESO-LV (Lauberts-Valentijn 1989) data added to catalog for 14,083 galaxies in common. (There are no ESO galaxies in the CF sample.) Likewise, Catnum is a record number uniquely assigned to each Courteau-Faber galaxy in the Mark III analysis. The five Zwicky-only galaxies in this list do not appear in the distance file "mark3cfs". These galaxies are: Catnum Zwicky Number 322 C406031 323 C421011 324 C421030 325 C476112 326 C477024 Note (2): Coordinates are expressed in decimal numbers. RA is in hour, declination in degrees. To convert RA to standard hr,min,sec, one must successively convert the decimal part of this number to min and sec. Similarly for declination. Note (3): Bytes 68-74 (HelioV) is the heliocentric radial velocity of the galaxy, from sources as quoted by Courteau (1996, ApJ Suppl. 103, p. 363). Bytes 75-81 (CMB_V) is the radial velocity of the galaxy relative to the Cosmic Microwave Background, using the COBE heliocentric-to-CMB correction of 368.6 km/sec towards l=264.7deg, b=48.2deg. Note (4): Bytes 96-99 (Extinc_r): Burstein-Heiles reddenings E(B-V), converted to r-band extinctions by the relation A_r = 2.24(E(B-V) as assumed by Courteau (1996). Note (5): Bytes 101-105 (CF_rmag) is the total extrapolated r magnitude for the galaxy, as observed. CF_rmagc (bytes 107-111) is the corrected total magnitude obtained by subtracting the correction Extinc_r (bytes 96-99) from CF_rmag.

Note (1): See Note (1) for a82file1.dat. Note (2): Catnum is a record number uniquely assigned to each Han-Mould galaxy in the Mark III analysis. The data for HM galaxies come from four different papers: Catnum 1 to 209: Han, M.-S. 1992, ApJS 81, 35. 210 to 316: Mould, J. et al. 1993, ApJ 409, 14 317 to 373: Mould, J. et al. 1991, ApJ 383, 467. 374 to 429: Han, M.-S and Mould, J 1992, ApJ 396, 453. (Perseus-Pisces sample) 430 to 433: Field galaxies found in these surveys Of these galaxies, six are not given distance predictions for various reasons: Catnum Name 186 E576-32 399 U1344 430 Z180059 431 N3989 432 N3987 433 N3993 There are also six galaxies observed twice, once by Han 1992, again by Han and Mould 1992. Both sets of observations are included in the distance file: Catnum1 Catnum2 Name 3 414 N444 4 415 N452 5 417 N536 16 408 U841 17 409 U987 19 412 U1066 Separately, the 48 galaxies towards the Great Attractor region observed by Bothun et al. (ApJ 388, 253) are not included in this survey for a combination of two reasons: a) Only 48 galaxies in the sample and b) almost complete overlap with better calibrated samples (e.g. 33 galaxies in common with Mathewson et al.). Note (3): Name: The naming convention for galaxies follows the convention: A = Anonymous, RA (hr,min), Dec (deg) in usual convention N = NGC I = IC U = UGC E = ESO number, but with or without preceding E in front of number Z, C = Zwicky, field+number Note (4): Coordinates are expressed in decimal numbers. RA is in hour, declination in degrees. To convert RA to standard hr,min,sec, one must successively convert the decimal part of this number to min and sec. Similarly for declination. Note (5): HelioV is the heliocentric radial velocity of the galaxy as quoted from the HM papers. CMB_V is the radial velocity of the galaxy relative to the Cosmic Microwave Background, using the COBE heliocentric-to-CMB correction of 368.6 km/sec towards l=264.7deg, b=48.2deg. Note (6): Burstein-Heiles reddenings E(B-V), converted to I-band extinctions by the relation A_I = 1.68(E(B-V)). Note (7): HM_Imag is the I band magnitude for the galaxy, as observed. For Catnum values 1 to 209, this magnitude is within the 23.5 mag/arcsecsq surface brightness isophote. For Catnum values 210 to 433, this magnitude is within the 24 mag/arcsecsq isophote level. HM_Imagc is the corrected total magnitude obtained by subtracting the correction Extinc_I (bytes 96-99) only from HM_Imag.

Note (1): Bytes 1-4 (Catnum) is a record number uniquely assigned to each galaxy in each data sample. Use this number to correspond the data in this file to the basic data files (i.e., ...filex.lst) for this galaxy sample. Bytes 6-10 (PGCnum) is the number of the galaxy in the Principal Galaxy Catalog (Paturel et al. 1991). Note (2): N = NGC (first name preference) I = IC (2nd preference) U = UGC (Nilson 1973) (3rd preference) E = ESO (Lauberts 1982) (3rd preference) Z = Zwicky, field+number (4th preference) A = Anonymous, RA (hr,min), Dec (deg) (4th preference) Note (3): Bytes 21-23 (Gp_code) is the number of the group assigned to each galaxy. If a galaxy is not assigned to a group, -1 is entered here. All galaxies in the cluster samples (hm and w91cl) are assigned to a group unless they were explicitly excluded from the TF calibration procedure (cf. Willick et al. 1995, ApJ 446, 12). Galaxies in the field samples (w91pp, cf, mat, a82) are placed into groups by the grouping algorithm of Willick et al. (1996, ApJ 457, 460). Group number zero signifies that the algorithm attempted to group the object but could not because it did not have neighbors sufficiently close in redshift space. Group number $-1$ signifies that the object was excluded a priori from the grouping procedure. For example, as explained in Willick et al. 1996 (Sec. 2 of that paper), the grouping algorithm was not applied to objects with ESO diameters smaller than 1.6 arcmin, with eta less than -0.42 or with inclinations less than 35 degrees. In addition, a small number of objects were excluded a priori for what were judged to be unreliable axial ratios. CF galaxies that lie in the Perseus-Pisces region, not otherwise in the w91PP sample, are combined with the w91pp sample for the purpose of forming maximal groups for later velocity analysis. The result is that cf and w91pp group numbers correspond to the same grouped sample. Note (4): Bytes 39-43 (eta = Log DelV - 2.5), where delV is the velocity full width, determined primarily from HI profiles, but in some cases from optical H-alpha rotation curves (cf. Willick et al. 1997). Note (5): Bytes 45-49 (GalMag) is the galaxy magnitude that goes into the Tully-Fisher distance calculation, fully corrected for Galactic extinction, inclination and redshift/distance dependencies (see Willick et al. 1997 for details). Bytes 56-59 (Mag_corr) is the sum of all the the corrections that are applied to the observed galaxy magnitude to produce GalMag. Note (6): Bytes 51-54 (Select) is the parameter on which the given galaxy sample was initially selected, and it can be either a diameter (in units or arcmin) or a magnitude. The actual diameter parameter can be either the ESO diameter or the UGC diameter. The actual magnitude parameter can be the Zwicky magnitude, or a raw RC3 magnitude (the last applies to a82 data only). This column is meant to signify the quantity that best approximates the sample selection criterion. E.g., for MAT we assume d_eso ≥ 1.6, for W91PP d_ugc ≥ 1.0, etc, when putting together "complete" samples. This column is not meant to be "good" data, it's just what the parent catalog gives. Note (7): Bytes 61-64 (A_Ext) Burstein-Heiles (1984, ApJS 54, 33) and unpublished maps) estimated B magnitude extinction, defined as 4.E(B-V). Note (8): Bytes 66-70 (Log_a/b) is the log of the axial ratio, major axis divided by minor axis, used for the galaxy in making inclinations corrections to observed maximum rotation velocities, magnitudes and diameters. Note (9): Bytes 72-74 (DB_type) is the hierarchical numerical morphological code developed by David Burstein for use with computer-based galaxy catalogs. The system for the RC3, ESO and UGC catalogs follows.

In this way, most of the detail in the morphological classification can be used in a numerical manner. In the case of the a82 data set, the morphological code number is that used by the 2nd Reference Catalog of Bright Galaxies (RC2; de Vaucouleurs, de Vaucouleurs & Corwin 1976). Note (10): Bytes 76-80 (Dist_tfr) is raw forward TF distance, computed using the forward TF parameters given in Willick et al. 1996, sample dependent. The Forward TF relations use for each data sample, and the passband for the quoted GMag are as follows (with errors given): [mat] (I-band): M = -5.79 + 6.80(eta) sigma = 0.43 +_0.03 +_0.08 [w91cl] (r-band): M = -4.18 + 7.73(eta) sigma = 0.38 0.02 0.21 [w91pp] (r-band): M = -4.28 + 7.12(eta) sigma = 0.38 0.02 0.18 [cf] (r-band): M = -4.22 + 7.73(eta) sigma = 0.38 0.02 0.21 [hm] (I-band): M = -5.48 + 7.87(eta) sigma = 0.40 0.03 0.16 [a82] (H-band): M = -5.95 + 10.29(eta) sigma = 0.47 0.04 0.22 Bytes 82-86 (Dist_tfc) is the forward TF distance, fully corrected for Inhomogeneous Malmquist Bias (IHM) (see Willick et al. 1997). Bytes 88-92 (Dist_tfi) is the raw inverse TF distance, computed using the inverse TF parameters given in Willick et al. 1997, sample dependent: [mat]: eta = -5.96 + 0.1328(M_I) sigma = 0.059 +_0.03 +_0.0016 [w91cl]: eta = -4.23 + 0.1190(M_r) sigma = 0.047 0.02 0.0032 [w91pp]: eta = -4.32 + 0.1244(M_r) sigma = 0.049 0.02 0.0031 [cf]: eta = -4.27 + 0.1190(M_r) sigma = 0.047 0.02 0.0032 [hm]: eta = -5.58 + 0.1177(M_I) sigma = 0.048 0.03 0.0025 [a82]: eta = -5.98 + 0.0893(M_H) sigma = 0.043 0.04 0.0018 Bytes 112-116 (Dist_iras) is the expected distance derived from the same IRAS reconstruction (beta=0.6) as was used in the Malmquist correction procedure (see Willick et al. 1997, Sec. 5 for details). This distance was computed as the expectation value of true distance, given the observed radial velocity and the IRAS-predicted peculiar velocity and density fields. A small-scale velocity dispersion of 150 km/s was assumed in the calculation. See Strauss & Willick (1995, Physics Reports, 261, 271; Sec. 8.1.3). Bytes 123-130 (TF_resid) is the residual, in magnitudes, from the group forward Tully-Fisher relation for galaxies defined to be in groups. The value is -9.999 for galaxies not in groups. Note (11): Bytes 94-98 (HelioV) is the heliocentric radial velocity of the galaxy, as quoted by the original source of data. Bytes 100-104 (Loggp_V) is the radial velocity of the galaxy referred to the Local Group velocity frame via the transformation given by Yahil, Sandage and Tammann (1977, ApJ 217, 903), to be applied to the heliocentric radial velocity: V_corr = -79cos(l)cos(b) + 296sin(l)cos(b) - 36sin(b). Bytes 106-110 (CMB_V) is the radial velocity of the galaxy referred to the Cosmic Microwave Background motion of the Sun. Relative to the heliocentric velocity frame, the CMB motion used is assumed to be 368.6 km/sec towards l = 264.7, b = 48.2. Note (12): Bytes 118-123 (Dens_over) is the local galaxy overdensity defined as (ng-n0)/n_0 where n_g is the local number density of galaxies and n_0 the mean number density, obtained from the IRAS reconstruction of the galaxy density field. The IRAS density was evaluated at the IHM-corrected forward TF distance when Locgp_V is less than 1000 km/s; otherwise it is calculated at the the IRAS-expected distance.

Note (1): Bytes 1-3 (Gp_code) is a record number uniquely assigned to each galaxy group within a given data sample. Each galaxy in the Independent Distance files is given a Gp_code if it is placed into a group. Bytes 4-6 (num_gal) is the number of galaxies in this group. In corresponding the galaxies in the Independent Distance files to the groups in these files, num_gal acts as a checksum on group identification. IMPORTANT: Groups are, in general, defined separately for each data sample. In most cases no attempt was made to place galaxies from different samples into the same group, with two exceptions: In the file mark3hmwg, the ten clusters common to the W91CL and HMCL samples have been merged and the distances suitably averaged. However, the group numbers in the HMCL and W91CL singles files correspond to hmcl_g and w91cl_g, not to wcf_g. In the file mark3wcfg, 23 CF galaxies in the PP region, but not present in the W91PP sample, were grouped along with the 326 W91PP galaxies. The W91PP and CF singles files have group numbers that correspond to WCF. See Willick et al. (1997) for further details. Note (2): Bytes 22-27 (mean_eta) is the mean value, <eta> = <Log DelV - 2.5> for all the spiral galaxies of this particular sample in the group. Note (3): Bytes 29-32 (tf_scatt) is the observed scatter about the TF relation for the galaxies in this group. This estimate is corrected for selection bias and degrees of freedom (i.e., it is not just rms residual, because the group distance modulus is a free parameter in the fit; cf. Willick etal. 1996, 1997). Note (4): Bytes 34-38 (Dist_tfc) and Bytes 40-44 (Dist_tfi) are the distances estimated for the group according to either a forward TF distance relation (tfc) or an inverse TF distance relation (tfi). Both are corrected for selection bias (however, this bias is small for tfi). See Willick etal. (1996, 1997) for details. The W91PP group file included for completeness only; WCF is suggested for velocity analysis. The HMW group file contains only the 10 clusters common to HMCL and W91CL (cf. Willick et al. 1995). These distances are used by the POTENT algorithm for these clusters. Note (5): Bytes 46-49 (e_dist) is the Distance Modulus uncertainty for the group, estimated from taking the observed scatter in the TF relation for ALL galaxies in this sample (sigtf) and dividing by the square root of num_gal. The values of sigtf assigned to each data set is as follows: Data Sample sigtf mark3gphmcl 0.40 mag mark3gphmpp 0.40 mark3gpw91cl 0.38 mark3gpw91pp 0.38 mark3gpcf 0.38 mark3gpmat 0.43 mark3gpa82 0.47 Note (6): Bytes 51-55 (HelioV) is the heliocentric radial velocity of the galaxy, as quoted by the original source of data. Bytes 57-61 (Loggp_V) is the radial velocity of the galaxy referred to the Local Group velocity frame via the transformation given by Yahil, Sandage and Tammann (1977, ApJ 217, 903), to be applied to the heliocentric radial velocity: V_corr = -79cos(l)cos(b) + 296sin(l)cos(b) - 36sin(b). Bytes 63-67 (CMB_V) is the radial velocity of the galaxy referred to the Cosmic Microwave Background motion of the Sun. Relative to the heliocentric velocity frame, the CMB motion is assumed to be 368.6 km/sec towards l = 264.7, b = 48.2. Note (7): Bytes 69-77 (Name) is the cluster name for the w91cl and hmcl samples. For the remaining samples, this entry is blank. Five HMPP clusters have been included in the HMCL sample. These five clusters (#s 32-36 in the hmcl file) were NOT included in the Paper I TF calibration. However, it was found that their inclusion in the calibration procedure has a negligible effect on the TF calibration parameters. Distances and scatter resulting from the calibration algorithm with them included are given here. No effort to modify them for the tiny differences between the Paper I/II TF calibration and the calibration that results with their inclusion was necessary.

(Note: in the table that appears in Willick et al. (1997), the Galactic longitude and latitude of these objects are indicated prior to the radial velocity.

Note (1): GINnum is the number uniquely assigned each galaxy for catalog work. The value of the number corresponds to the source of data: 1-577 comes from the 7 Samurai survey. 581-655 comes from Lucey & Carter. 660-795 comes from the Dressler-Faber data. 800-872 are galaxies for which the Log_sig and/or LogDn values are taken from more than one source (listed by code as data_src; see Note (11)). There are many more galaxies in this file than in egalf2.dat owing to the fact that many galaxies do not have any, or complete, distance related data. Note (2): The name of the galaxy as given by the original data source: A = Abell cluster number and galaxy number; e.g. AXXXX-YYY Ab = Abell cluster number plus letter designation for galaxy, e.g. Ab2199I Anon = Anonymous galaxy designation, e.g. Anon1853 or Anon220+42 CR = Chincarini & Rood (ApJ 1971, 168, 321) number D = Dressler (1980, ApJS 42, 565) number for galaxy E = ESO catalog name, in a format e.g. EXXX-G000 or EXXX-IG000 I = IC number N = NGC number PER = Dressler observations of Perseus galaxies SPS = Dressler (1988, ApJ 329, 519) designation for redshift survey galaxy U = UGC number Note (3): 4 x E(B-V) taken from Burstein & Heiles (1982 ApJS 54, 33) and computerized reddening maps. Note (4): GPnum is the number given to the group or cluster to which the galaxy has been assigned. See Faber et al. (1989) for details. In general GPnum values of 0 are single galaxies (118 galaxies); GPnum between 20 and 110, and 274, 275 and 279 are galaxies in groups with more than one member in this data set (370 galaxies); GPnum between 200 and 299, not otherwise cited are galaxies known to be in a group or cluster, but for which we only have one galaxy measured (56 galaxies). Note (5): HelioVI is the heliocentric radial velocity of the individual galaxy, as given by the data source(s). When a galaxy has been measured more than once, the value given in an average of the sources. HelioVG is the heliocentric radial velocity of the group in which the the galaxy is contained. This heliocentric velocity is the average of all known galaxies in that group/cluster, not just those in the Egal sample. Note (6): Photoelectric B-V color for the galaxy within a 67 arcsec diameter aperture, as given by Burstein et al. (1987, ApJS 64, 601). Note (7): B_T, logAe, SB_e and Log D_n are the photometric parameters derived either from photoelectric aperture growth curves (Burstein et al. 1987), or CCD images (Burstein et al. 1987; Lucey & Carter 1989; Dressler & Faber 1990). All are either observed in, or transformed to, the B mag passband. log A_e is the effective circular aperture for the galaxy (the circular aperture containing 1/2 the galaxy light); SB_e is the effective circular mean surface brightness. D_n is the diameter within which the galaxy has a mean B mag surface brightness of 20.75 mag/arcsec^2. Note (8): Quality parameters for the quoted values. See Burstein et al. (1987) for the meaning of these parameters. q = 0, 3 or 4 for a parameter means it is bad and not to be used for serious work. Note (9): Log_10 of velocity dispersion, in km/s, as quoted by the source(s). If more than one source of velocity dispersion, the values are averaged. Velocity dispersion used is the one corrected for distance-aperture effect (see Davies et al. ApJS 64, 581). Note (10): The absorption line index Mg_2 for the galaxies, as quoted by the source(s). If more than one source, the values are averaged. Mg_2 values have been aperture-corrected as given in Davies et al. (1987). Note (11): Data Sources: 1 = 7 Samurai (Faber et al., Burstein et al., Davies et al.) 2 = Dressler & Faber 3 = Lucey and Carter Combinations can be 12 (7S+DF), 13 (7S+LC); 23 (DF+LC) and 123 (all three).

Note (2): GPnum is the number given to the group or cluster to which the galaxy has been assigned. See Faber et al. (1989) for details. In general GPnum values of 0 are single galaxies (118 galaxies); GPnum between 20 and 110, and 274, 275 and 279 are galaxies in groups with more than one member in this data set (370 galaxies); GPnum between 200 and 299, not otherwise cited are galaxies known to be in a group or cluster, but for which we only have one galaxy measured (56 galaxies). Note (3): HelioV is the heliocentric radial velocity of the galaxy, as given by the data sources. When a galaxy has been measured more than once, the value given in an average of the sources. Note (4): LocGpV is the Local Group radial velocity of the galaxy, given by the general prescription used in the Mark 2 catalog: Note (5): PecV1 is the predicted peculiar velocity assuming a smooth Malmquist bias correction, and referred to the velocity of the galaxy with respect to the Cosmic Microwave Background. DistMB1 is the smooth Malmquist bias-corrected distance, in units of km/s. To get the CMB velocity used here, simply add PecV1 to DistMB1. Distraw is the predicted distance of the galaxy or group WITHOUT any Malmquist bias correction added. To get the peculiar velocity predicted without a Malmquist bias, simply take the difference between DistMB1 and Distraw and add this to PecV1. Note: The peculiar velocities listed here are revised from the original Mark II values, owing to a downward correction of predicted distance by a factor of 0.965, to bring E galaxy distances into accord with spiral galaxy distances. Hence, both DistMB1 and Distraw are 0.965 the value in the original Mark II, and PecV1 is the difference between the CMB velocity and the new value of DistMB1. Note (6): Log_10 of velocity dispersion, in km/s, as quoted by the source(s). If more than one source of velocity dispersion, the values are averaged. Velocity dispersion used is the one corrected for distance-aperture effect (see Davies et al. ApJS 64, 581). Note (7): D_n is the diameter within which the galaxy has a mean B mag surface brightness of 20.75 mag/arcsec^2. Given in log units of 0.1 arcmin.
