We present the results of an unbiased survey for 6.7 GHz methanol masers in the Galactic plane carried out using the 305 m Arecibo radio telescope. A total of 18.2 deg2 was surveyed with uniform sampling at 35.2° ≤ l ≤ 53.7°, |b| ≤ 0.41°. The large collecting area of Arecibo and the sensitive C-Band High receiver allowed the survey to be complete at the level of 0.27 Jy, making this the most sensitive blind survey carried out to date. We detected a total of 86 sources, 48 of which are new… 
The Arecibo Methanol Maser Galactic Plane Survey
Abstract The Arecibo Methanol Maser Galactic Plane Survey (AMGPS) is a blind survey for 6.7 GHz methanol masers in a section of the Galactic plane visible from the Arecibo radio telescope. The survey
The Arecibo Methanol Maser Galactic Plane Survey. II. Statistical and Multiwavelength Counterpart Analysis
We present an analysis of the properties of the 6.7 GHz methanol maser sample detected in the Arecibo Methanol Maser Galactic Plane Survey. The distribution of the masers in the Galaxy, and
The Methanol Multibeam Survey
Abstract A new 7-beam methanol multibeam receiver is being used to survey the Galaxy for newly forming massive stars, that are pinpointed by strong methanol maser emission at 6.668 GHz. The receiver,
The Torun catalogue of 6.7 GHz methanol masers
We report the observations of 289 methanol maser sources at 6.7 GHz obtained over a two month period with the Torun 32 m telescope. The data form a catalogue of all objects north of δ = –22° brighter
A 6.7 GHz Methanol Maser Survey. II. Low Galactic Latitudes
We report the results of our systematic survey for Galactic 6.7 GHz Class II CH3OH maser emission toward a sample of young stellar objects. The survey was conducted with the Shanghai Tianma Radio
A Search for 6.7 GHz Methanol Masers in M33
We report the negative results from a search for 6.7 GHz methanol masers in the nearby spiral galaxy M33. We observed 14 GMCs in the central 4 kpc of the Galaxy, and found 3 σ upper limits to the
THE ARECIBO METHANOL MASER GALACTIC PLANE SURVEY. IV. ACCURATE ASTROMETRY AND SOURCE MORPHOLOGIES
We present accurate absolute astrometry of 6.7 GHz methanol masers detected in the Arecibo Methanol Maser Galactic Plane Survey using MERLIN and the Expanded Very Large Array (EVLA). We estimate the
Simulated Galactic methanol maser distribution to constrain Milky Way parameters
Using trigonometric parallaxes and proper motions of masers associated with massive young stars, the Bar and Spiral Structure Legacy (BeSSeL) survey has reported the most accurate values of the
Observations of 12.2 GHz methanol masers towards northern high-mass protostellar objects
Context. Class II methanol masers at 6.7 and 12.2 GHz occur close to high-mass young stellar objects (HMYSOs). When they are observed simultaneously, such studies may contribute to refining the
A 12.2 GHz Methanol Maser Survey toward the 6.7 GHz Counterparts Associated with/without UC H ii Regions
We report a new survey of the 12.2 GHz Class II methanol masers toward a sample of 367 sources with the 6.7 GHz methanol masers conducted with the Shanghai 65 m Tianma Radio Telescope. This sample
