Paper I: A volume-limited sample of 260 nearby early-type galaxies: science goals and selection criteria

Cappellari et al. (2011a, MNRAS, 413, 813)

Tables content: Galaxy, RA, DEC, SBF, NED-D, Virgo, Vhel, Dist, MK, AB, T-type, Re

  • Table 3: The ATLAS3D sample or 260 early-type (E and S0) galaxies
  • Table 4: The 611 spiral galaxies in the ATLAS3D parent sample

Figure 5+6: Single-page high-resolution image of the 260 E and S0 galaxies of the ATLAS3D sample, sorted by name

2-dim Stellar Kinematics content: Xbin, Ybin, V(Gauss), σ(Gauss), V(GH), σ(GH), h3, h4, errors
FITS files (ZIP file): Voronoi binned stellar kinematics for the 260 galaxies in the ATLAS3D sample. The files are standard FITS tables. For example a radial profile of velocity dispersion for one galaxy can be generated with the following two IDL commands:

tab = mrdfits('PXF_bin_MS_IC0560_r4_idl.fits.gz',1)
plot, sqrt(tab.XS^2 + tab.YS^2), tab.SPXF_VS, PSYM=4

The above ZIP file contains two directories. The kinematics for all the 260 galaxies in both directories was homogeneously extracted as described in Cappellari et al. (2011a), which we request you to cite. However the kinematics for the subset of 47 galaxies in a separate directory was already presented in Emsellem et al. (2004). Please also refer to the latter paper when using any of the galaxies in the subset.

Maps of the mean velocity and second velocity moment of all galaxies are presented in Paper II and Paper XV respectively (see below).

2-dim Gas Emission Fluxes and Kinematics
FITS files (8.19 MB; TGZ file): Gas emission fluxes and kinematics for the 260 galaxies in the ATLAS3D sample.

The FITS table contains: the coordinates of the Voronoi generators (XS,YS) in arcsec, the amplitudes (e.g. A_HB_GAS; in units of 10-17 erg/s/cm2/Å/arcsec2) and the fluxes (e.g. HB_GAS; in units of 10-17 erg/s/cm2/arcsec2) of the gas emission lines, as well as the mean velocity V (e.g. V_HB_GAS) and the velocity dispersion σ (e.g. S_HB_GAS) in km/s.

To generate a map of the Voronoi binned (Cappellari & Copin 2003) quantities, one can use the example given in the section "3-dim Spectral Cubes" below. One simply needs to replace the file name PXF_bin_MS_NGC3412_r3_idl.fits.gz with IonisedGas_bin_MS_NGC3412_r3.fits and then change the line velbin = table["VPXF"] into something like velbin = table["V_HB_GAS"].

3-dim Spectral Cubes
FITS files (1.55 GB; ZIP file): Unbinned spectral cubes for the 260 galaxies in the ATLAS3D sample.

As an illustration of the FITS format, the following Python example shows a Voronoi binned (Cappellari & Copin 2003) map of the mean stellar velocity, with overlaid the galaxy surface brightness. Note that one needs both (i) the coordinates and the spectra in the non-binned FITS data cube, and (ii) the cordinates of the Voronoi generators, which are stored with the kinematics. (The required routine display_bins_generators is here)

x = table["A"] # Coordinates of the original spaxels in arcsec (nort is up)

xgen = table["XS"] # Voronoi generators
ygen = table["YS"]
velbin = table["VPXF"] # Mean stellar velocity
