Beginning of ReadMe : J/MNRAS/253/485 QMW IRAS galaxy catalogue (Rowan-Robinson+, 1991) ================================================================================ The QMW IRAS galaxy catalogue : a highly complete and reliable IRAS 60-mu-m galaxy catalogue. Rowan-Robinson M., Saunders W., Lawrence A., Leech K. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc. 253, 485 (1991)> =1991MNRAS.253..485R ================================================================================ ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, IR ; Surveys Abstract: This study presents a highly complete and reliable IRAS 60-micron galaxy catalog covering 82 percent of the sky. IRAS color conditions are used to exclude galactic sources, including the remaining cirrus sources. All sources flagged as extended, confused, or having a poor correlation coefficient with a point-source template are examined with the raw IRAS data and accurate fluxes determined using mapping routines. The completeness, reliability, and flux accuracy of the catalog are discussed. Identifications are made with existing optical galaxy catalogs and with galaxy redshift surveys in the literature. It is estimated that redshifts are available for 79 percent of the galaxies in the catalog with V less than 5000km/s, and the 3D distribution of such galaxies is displayed. The dipole component of the surface-brightness distribution of galaxies in the catalog is discussed.
