Rotational and radial velocities have been mea- sured for about 2000 evolved stars of luminosity classes IV, III, II and Ib covering the spectral region F, G and K. The survey was carried out with the CORAVEL spec- trometer. The precision for the radial velocities is better than 0.30 km s 1 , whereas for the rotational velocity mea- surements the uncertainties are typically 1.0 km s 1 for subgiants and giants and 2.0 km s 1 for class II giants and Ib supergiants. These data will add constraints…
