Catalogue of kinematical profiles
We are collecting kinematical
profiles of galaxies published in the
The present version contains velocity
and velocity dispersion profiles
for about 1200 galaxies. This represents only about 20% of the amount
of data available in the literature. We will continue to enter new
We are gathering all spatially
resolved kinematical data for galaxies(irrespective of the
morphological type) in the framework of the development of the
The catalogue consists in two
parts: the bibliography is already available and is described in
Prugniel et al. 1998 (A&AS 127, 117).
We are now starting to collect
all the data (rotation curves and velocity dispersion profiles) in
order to make them available from Hypercat (as tables as well as in the
form of plots). To this aim we are asking the authors to provide us
with their data.
We ask you if you could kindly
e-mail the data in your possession to: firstname.lastname@example.org, together
with a reference to the paper where the data are described.
We are aware that to do this
could cause some extra work, nevertheless we hope that the Colleagues
will feel motivated enough in making their data readily available to
the community from the data-base.
