Photometric and morphological analysis of UCM galaxies. I. Observations and reductions. Morphological classifications.
We present the results of Thuan & Gunn r CCD imaging observations of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) sample of emission-line galaxies (ELGs), selected by the presence of Hα emission in low-resolution objective prism spectra. In this work we characterize photometrically and morphologically a total of 212 objects from the UCM survey. This Paper presents the observations and basic reductions, and lists a set of photometric parameters calculated for each UCM object. In addition, for the first time in a ELGs sample, we have determined the morphological classification of the objects using simultaneously five different criteria.
