PROBES. I. A Compendium of Deep Rotation Curves and Matched Multiband Photometry

Full Article Here

We present the Photometry and Rotation Curve Observations from Extragalactic
Surveys (PROBES) compendium of extended rotation curves for 3163 late-type
spirals, with matching homogeneous multiband photometry for 1677 of them.
PROBES rotation curves originally extracted from Halpha long-slit spectra and
aperture synthesis HI (21cm) velocity maps typically extend out to a median
2R_e (or 1R_{23.5, r}). Our uniform photometry takes advantage of GALEX,
DESI-LIS, and WISE images and the software AutoProf to yield multiband
azimuthally averaged surface brightness profiles that achieve depths greater
than 25 mag/arcsec^2 (FUV, NUV), 27 mag/arcsec^2 (g, r), and 26 mag/arcsec^2
(z, W1, W2). With its library of spatially resolved profiles and an extensive
table of structural parameters, the versatile PROBES data set will benefit
studies of galaxy structure and formation.
