1991A&AS...90..121C Kinematical observations of ordinary spiral galaxies: A bibliographical compilation R.L.M. Cortadi, M. Capaccioli Dipartimento di Astronomia, Universita di Padova, 35122 Padova, Italy Received January 2; accepted February 14, 1991 Abstract. - We present a collection of data extracted from 280 papers reporting observations of the kinematics of 245 non-barred spiral galaxies. Information is provided on the type of observations (instruments, spectral lines used, etc.) and the derived geometrical and kinematical parameters of the galaxies (major axis position angle, inclination, heliocentric systemic velocity, maximum extension of the kinematical measurements, etc...). In addition, whenever possible, a `mean' rotation curve has been considered, from which we have derived the maximum rotational velocity of the galaxy and a parameter describing the essential shape of the rotation curve within r_25_. Histograms illustrating the distribution of morphological types, inclinations, extensions of the kinematical measurements, and maximum rotational velocities account for the statistical properties of this sample of spiral galaxies. Key words: galaxies: spiral - galaxies: kinematics and dynamics of- catalogues and dictionaries
