Cosmicflows-2 is a compilation of distances and peculiar velocities for over 8000 galaxies. Numerically the largest contributions come from the luminosity–line width correlation for spirals, the Tully–Fisher relation (TFR), and the related fundamental plane relation for E/S0 systems, but over 1000 distances are contributed by methods that provide more accurate individual distances: Cepheid, tip of the red giant branch (TRGB), surface brightness fluctuation, Type Ia supernova, and several… 

Cosmicflows-4: The Calibration of Optical and Infrared Tully–Fisher Relations

This study is a part of the Cosmicflows-4 project with the aim of measuring the distances of more than ∼10,000 spiral galaxies in the local universe up to ∼15,000 km s − 1 . New H i line width

Cosmicflows-4: The Catalog of ∼10,000 Tully–Fisher Distances

We present the distances of 9792 spiral galaxies lying within 15,000 km s−1 using the relation between luminosity and rotation rate of spiral galaxies. The sample is dominantly, but not exclusively,

Large-scale bulk flows from the Cosmicflows-2 catalogue

The Cosmicflows-2 catalogue is a compendium of peculiar velocity measurements. While it has many objects in common with the COMPOSITE catalogue, a previously analysed collection of peculiar velocity

From Spitzer Galaxy photometry to Tully–Fisher distances

This paper involves a data release of the observational campaign: Cosmicflows with Spitzer (CFS). Surface photometry of the 1270 galaxies constituting the survey is presented. An additional ∼400

Cosmic bulk flow and the local motion from Cosmicflows-2

Full sky surveys of peculiar velocity are arguably the best way to map the large-scale structure (LSS) out to distances of a few x 100 h(-1) Mpc. Using the largest and most accurate ever catalogue of

Filaments from the galaxy distribution and from the velocity field in the local universe

The cosmic web that characterizes the large-scale structure of the Universe can be quantified by a variety of methods. For example, large redshift surveys can be used in combination with point

One Law to Rule Them All: The Radial Acceleration Relation of Galaxies

We study the link between baryons and dark matter (DM) in 240 galaxies with spatially resolved kinematic data. Our sample spans 9 dex in stellar mass and includes all morphological types. We consider

The Extragalactic Distance Database: The Color–Magnitude Diagrams/Tip of the Red Giant Branch Distance Catalog

The Extragalactic Distance Database (EDD) was created as a repository for high-quality, redshift-independent distances. A key component of EDD is the Color–Magnitude Diagrams/Tip of the Red Giant

The peculiar velocity field up to z ∼ 0.05 by forward-modelling Cosmicflows-3 data

A hierarchical Bayesian model is applied to the Cosmicflows-3 catalogue of galaxy distances in order to derive the peculiar velocity field and distribution of matter within z ∼ 0.054. The model

From Cosmicflows distance moduli to unbiased distances and peculiar velocities

Surveys of galaxy distances and radial peculiar velocities can be used to reconstruct the large-scale structure. Other than systematic errors in the zero-point calibration of the galaxy distances

COSMICFLOWS-2: TYPE Ia SUPERNOVA CALIBRATION AND H0

The construction of the Cosmicflows-2 compendium of distances involves the merging of distance measures contributed by the following methods: (Cepheid) period–luminosity, tip of the red giant branch

Distances to Galaxies from the Correlation between Luminosities and Line Widths. III. Cluster Template and Global Measurement of H0

The correlation between the luminosities and rotation velocities of galaxies can be used to estimate distances to late-type galaxies. It is an appropriate moment to reevaluate this method given the

We report data for I-band surface brightness fluctuation (SBF) magnitudes, (V-I) colors, and distance moduli for 300 galaxies. The survey contains E, S0, and early-type spiral galaxies in the

We present the direct measurement of the Hubble constant, yielding the direct measurement of the angular-diameter distance to NGC 6264 using the H2O megamaser technique. Our measurement is based on

Tip of the Red Giant Branch Distances. II. Zero-Point Calibration

The luminosity of the tip of the red giant branch (TRGB) provides an excellent measure of galaxy distances and is easily determined in the resolved images of nearby galaxies observed with Hubble

In order to measure distances with minimal systematics using the correlation between galaxy luminosities and rotation rates it is necessary to adhere to a strict and tested recipe. We now derive a

CALIBRATION OF THE MID-INFRARED TULLY–FISHER RELATION

Distance measures on a coherent scale around the sky are required to address the outstanding cosmological problems of the Hubble constant and of departures from the mean cosmic flow. The correlation

We present initial results from a time series BVI survey of two fields in NGC 4258 using the HST ACS. This galaxy was selected because of its accurate maser-based distance, which is anticipated to

We report the results of applying the 2MASS Tully-Fisher (TF) relations to study galaxy bulk flows. For 1141 all-sky distributed flat RFGC galaxies we construct J,H, Ks TF relations and find that
