Apparent maximum stellar rotation velocity: vmaxs

The rotation of the stellar component of galaxy is obtained from the compilation of internal stellar kinematics.

The rotation of the gaseous component is given in the parameter vmaxg, and the stellar velocity dispersion in vdis

For disk-like galaxies (eg. mostly disks of spiral), the apparent rotation may be converted into the true (physical) rotation using the inclination given in the parameter incl.
