2006ApJS..164...52S Multiwavelength Star Formation Indicators: Observations H. R. Schmitt, D. Calzetti, L. Armus, M. Giavalisco, T. M. Heckman, R. C. Kennicutt, Jr., C. Leitherer, and G. R. Meurer Abstract. We present a compilation of multiwavelength data on different star formation indicators for a sample of nearby star forming galaxies. Here we discuss the observations, reductions and measurements of ultraviolet images obtained with STIS on board the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), ground-based H{alpha}, and VLA 8.46 GHz radio images. These observations are complemented with infrared fluxes, as well as large-aperture optical, radio, and ultraviolet data from the literature. This database will be used in a forthcoming paper to compare star formation rates at different wave bands. We also present spectral energy distributions (SEDs) for those galaxies with at least one far-infrared measurements from ISO, longward of 100 microns. These SEDs are divided in two groups, those that are dominated by the far-infrared emission, and those for which the contribution from the far-infrared and optical emission is comparable. These SEDs are useful tools to study the properties of high-redshift galaxies. Key words: Galaxies: Evolution, Galaxies: Starburst, Infrared: Galaxies, Radio Continuum: Galaxies, Stars: Formation, Ultraviolet: Galaxies
