    "Pie" slices

    These 135ox12o "pie" slices depict UZC cz velocity distribution:
    RA 08-17h Dec from -03o to +12o | Dec from +12o to +24o [Postscript]
    Dec from +24o to +36o | Dec from +36o to +48o [Postscript]
    RA 20-04h Dec from -03o to +12o | Dec from +12o to +24o [Postscript]
    Dec from +24o to +36o | Dec from +36o to +48o [Postscript]

    Updates

    12 Dec 2001 Added spectra from the FAST archive, improved the UZC web search, and added access to UZC by ID.
    16 Nov 2001 Improved page layout, adding separate page for each slice; added web search of UZC and display of spectra from the Z-Machine archive.
    27 Sep 2000 Added all-sky map showing UZC coverage.
    30 Aug 2000 Corrected coordinates of 27 galaxies. Thanks to Jeff Mader of CfA for his cross-checking.
    14 Jul 2000 Added 115 new FAST cz from Mar 00-Jul 00 to the UZC. Only 215 cz remain to be measured with FAST to achieve 100% completeness.
    19 Nov 1999 Updated reference list for the UZC: uzcref.ps.gz (24 Kb)
    19 Nov 1999 Incorporated final corrections from Harold Corwin (mainly having to do with names of objects). Note that the catalog herewith (19424 entries) supersedes all older versions.
    28 Sep 1999 Corrected the UZC classes for 090439.3+181526 and 092319.3+163700; thanks to Patricia Bauer of CDS who found they had UZC class typos in the previous version of the UZC.
    19 Apr 1999 Incorporated corrections suggested by Harold Corwin (many thanks!).
