We present the global optical photometry of 246 galaxies in the Local Volume Legacy (LVL) survey. The full volume-limited sample consists of 258 nearby (D <11 Mpc) galaxies whose absolute Biband magnitude span a range of i9.6 < MB < i20.7 mag. A composite optical (UBV R) data set is constructed from observed UBV R and SDSS ugriz imaging, where the ugriz magnitudes are transformed into UBV R. We present photometry within three galaxy apertures defined at UV, optical, and IR wavelengths. Flux…
