1995ApJS...99..501P ROTATION CURVES OF 967 SPIRAL GALAXIES MASSIMO PERSIC AND PAOLO SALUCCI Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati, Strada Costiera 11, I- 34014 Trieste, Italy; persic, salucci@tsmil9.sissa.it; D:38028: : PERSIC, 38028: :SALUCCI Received 1994 August 23; accepted 1994 December 30 ABSTRACT We present the rotation curves of 967 southern spiral galaxies, obtained by deprojecting and folding the raw H{alpha} data originally published by Mathewson, Ford, & Buchhorn (1992). For 900 objects, we also present, in figures and tables, the rotation curves smoothed on scales corresponding to 5%-20% of the optical size; of these, 80 meet objective excellence criteria and are suitable for individual detailed mass modeling, while 820, individually less compelling mainly because of the moderate statistics and/or limited extension, are suitable for statistical studies. The remaining 67 curves suffer from severe asymmetries, small statistics, and large internal scatter that may largely limit their use in galaxy structure studies. The deprojected folded curves, the smoothed curves, and various related quantities are available via anonymous ftp at galileo.sissa.it in the directory /users/ftp/pub/psrot.
