UBV photometry of Galactic foreground and LMC member stars - III. LMC member stars - a new data base
New UBV photometry for 878 luminous member stars of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and 13 stars of uncertain membership is presented. The data will be available at Centre de Données astronomiques de Strasbourg. Including former observations now UBV data are available for altogether 2470 luminous LMC stars and 2106 foreground stars plus 65 stars of uncertain membership. The observations have been used already for several investigations dealing e.g. with interstellar reddening lines and intrinsic colours, the dust distribution and the calibration of charge-coupled device exposures.
