2009AJ....138..323T The Extragalactic Distance Database Tully, R. Brent; Rizzi, Luca; Shaya, Edward J.; Courtois, Helene M.; Makarov, Dmitry I.; Jacobs, Bradley A. Abstract. A database can be accessed on the Web at http://edd.ifa.hawaii.edu that was developed to promote access to information related to galaxy distances. The database has three functional components. First, tables from many literature sources have been gathered and enhanced with links through a distinct galaxy naming convention. Second, comparisons of results both at the levels of parameters and of techniques have begun and are continuing, leading to increasing homogeneity and consistency of distance measurements. Third, new material is presented arising from ongoing observational programs at the University of Hawaii 2.2 m telescope, radio telescopes at Green Bank, Arecibo, and Parkes and with the Hubble Space Telescope. This new observational material is made available in tandem with related material drawn from archives and passed through common analysis pipelines. Key words: astronomical data bases: miscellaneous, catalogs, galaxies: distances and redshifts, galaxies: fundamental parameters
