2010AstBu..65....1K Catalog of isolated galaxies selected from the 2MASS survey Karachentseva, V. E.; Mitronova, S. N.; Melnyk, O. V.; Karachentsev, I. D. Abstract. We search for isolated galaxies based on the automatic identification of isolated sources from the Two Micron All-Sky Survey (2MASS) followed by a visual inspection of their surroundings. We use the modified Karachentseva criterion to compile a catalog of 3227 isolated galaxies (2MIG), which contains 6% of 2MASS Extended Sources Catalog (or 2MASX) sources brighter than K_s_ = 12^ m ^ with angular diameters a_ K_ >= 30". The catalog covers the entire sky and has an effective depth of z ~ 0.02. The 2493 very isolated objects of the catalog, which we include into the 2MVIG catalog, can be used as a reference sample to investigate the effects of the environment on the structure and evolution of galaxies located in regions with extremely low density of matter.
