Beginning of ReadMe : VII/275 GLADE catalog (Dalya+, 2016) ================================================================================ An extended list of galaxies for gravitational wave searches in the advanced detector era. Dalya G., Frei Z., Galgoczi G., Raffai P., de Souza R.S. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., in prep. (2016)> =2016yCat.7275....0D =2016MNRAS.in.prep.. ================================================================================ ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs ; Photometry, infrared ; Photometry, UBVRI Abstract: We are introducing a value-added full-sky galaxy catalog with high completeness for identifying gravitational wave (GW) sources in order to support future electromagnetic (EM) follow-up projects of the LIGO/Virgo Collaboration. The catalog GLADE (Galaxy List for the Advanced Detector Era) has been constructed (combined and matched) from four existing galaxy catalogs: GWGC, 2MPZ, 2MASS XSC and HyperLEDA. It contains 1918147 galaxies, which is two orders of magnitude greater than the number of galaxies in the GWGC catalog alone (53312), which is currently in use by the collaboration. Furthermore we considered it as a crucial requirement towards the catalog to contain B-band magnitudes and distances for all entries. Therefore we have associated these properties for 548876 2MASS galaxies which lacked them with a regression algorithm teached on a subsample of the 2MPZ catalog. Our catalog is complete to 73Mpc and even at 300Mpc has a relatively high completeness (53%). Naturally, our catalog could be used in a broad range of various astrophysical projects besides EM follow-up efforts.We are introducing a value-added full-sky galaxy catalog with high completeness for identifying gravitational wave (GW) sources in order to support future electromagnetic (EM) follow-up projects of the LIGO/Virgo Collaboration.
