Abstract (from CDS):


Aims. Distances are key to determining the physical properties of sources.In the Galaxy, large (>10000) homogeneous samples of sources for which distance are available, covering the whole Galactic distance range, are still missing. Here we present a catalog of velocity and distance for a large sample (>100000) of Hi-GAL compact sources.
Methods. We developed a fully automatic Python package to extract the velocity and determine the distance. To assign a velocity to a Hi-GAL compact source, the code uses all the available spectroscopic data complemented by a morphological analysis. Once the velocity is determined, if no stellar or maser parallax distance is known, the kinematic distance is calculated and the distance ambiguity (for sources located inside the Solar circle) is solved with the HI self-absorption method or from distance-extinction data.
Results. Among the 150223 compact sources of the Hi-GAL catalog, we obtained a distance for 124 069 sources for the 5σ catalog (and 128351 sources for the 3σ catalog), where σ represents the noise level of each molecular spectrum used for the line detections made at 5σ and 3σ to produce the respective catalogs.
