Radio sources associated with Optical Galaxies and having Unresolved or Extended morphologies (ROGUE). I. A catalog of SDSS galaxies with FIRST core identifications.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present the catalog of Radio sources associated with Optical Galaxies and having Unresolved or Extended morphologies I (ROGUE I), consisting of 32,616 spectroscopically selected galaxies. It is the largest handmade catalog of this kind, obtained by cross-matching galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 7 and radio sources from both the First Images of Radio Sky at Twenty Centimetre (FIRST) survey and the NRAO Very Large Array Sky Survey, without imposing a limit on the radio flux densities. The catalog provides a visual classification of radio and optical morphologies of galaxies presenting a FIRST core within 3'' of the optical position. The radio morphological classification is performed by examining the radio-optical overlays of linear sizes equal to 1 Mpc at the source distance, while the 120'' image snapshots from the SDSS database are used for optical classification. The results of our search are as follows: (i) single-component unresolved and elongated radio sources constitute the major group in the ROGUE I catalog (∼90%), and ∼8% exhibit extended morphologies; (ii) samples of 269, 730, and 115 Fanaroff-Riley (FR) type I, II, and hybrid galaxies, respectively, are presented; (iii) we report 55 newly discovered giant/possible giant, 16 double-double, 9 X-shaped, and 25 Z-shaped radio sources; (iv) on the optical front, most galaxies have elliptical morphologies (∼62%) while spirals form the second major category (∼17%) followed by distorted (∼12%) and lenticular (∼7%) morphologies; and (v) division between the FR I and the FR II sources in the radio-optical luminosity plane is blurred, in tune with recent studies.
