Beginning of ReadMe : VII/281 GLADE v2.3 catalog (Dalya+, 2018) ================================================================================ GLADE: A galaxy catalogue for multimessenger searches in the advanced gravitational-wave detector era. Dalya G., Galgoczi G., Dobos L., Frei Z., Heng I.S., Macas R., Messenger C., Raffai P., de Souza R.S. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc. 479, 2374-2381 (2018)> =2018MNRAS.479.2374D =2018yCat.7281....0D ================================================================================ ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs ; Photometry, infrared ; Photometry, UBVRI ; Redshifts Keywords: catalogues - galaxies: distances and redshifts Abstract: We introduce a value-added full-sky catalogue of galaxies, named as Galaxy List for the Advanced Detector Era, or GLADE. The purpose of this catalogue is to (i) help identifications of host candidates for gravitational-wave events, (ii) support target selections for electromagnetic follow-up observations of gravitational-wave candidates, (iii) provide input data on the matter distribution of the local Universe for astrophysical or cosmological simulations, and (iv) help identifications of host candidates for poorly localized electromagnetic transients, such as gamma-ray bursts observed with the InterPlanetary Network. Both being potential hosts of astrophysical sources of gravitational waves, GLADE includes inactive and active galaxies as well. GLADE was constructed by cross-matching and combining data from five separate (but not independent) astronomical catalogues: GWGC, 2MPZ, 2MASS XSC, HyperLEDA, and SDSS-DR12Q. GLADE is complete up to d_L_=37^+3^_-4_Mpc in terms of the cumulative B-band luminosity of galaxies within luminosity distance dL, and contains all of the brightest galaxies giving half of the total B-band luminosity up to d_L_=91Mpc. As B-band luminosity is expected to be a tracer of binary neutron star mergers (currently the prime targets of joint GW+EM detections), our completeness measures can be used as estimations of completeness for containing all binary neutron star merger hosts in the local Universe. Description: In the construction of GLADE, we started with cross-matching five separate (but not independent) astronomical catalogues: the GWGC (White et al., 2011, Cat. VII/267), the HyperLEDA catalogue (Makarov et al., 2014A&A...570A..13M, leda.univ-lyon1.fr), the 2 Micron All-Sky Survey Extended Source Catalog (2MASS XSC, Cat. VII/233, see Skrutskie et al., 2006AJ....131.1163S), the 2MASS Photometric Redshift Catalog (2MPZ, ssa.roe.ac.uk/TWOMPZ.html, see Bilicki et al., 2014ApJS..210....9B), and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey quasar catalogue from the 12th data release6 (SDSS-DR12Q, see Paris et al., 2017A&A...597A..79P, Cat. VII/279).
