I am interested in studying how to convert radial velocity data on
hydrogen, CO and molecular clouds in the Milky Way into galactic x-y
spatial maps. I have a general understanding of Oort constants. Would
someone please post some article or book references that I can use as
a study starting point? Thanks - Kurt


Any decent galactic dynamics book will cover this. A good one to start
with would be _Galactic Astronomy_ by Binney & Merrifield.

Thanks Prof. Wright, that was right on the money. - Kurt

See Eqn(8) in my Astro 140 notes (pages 6-10 are relevant),
reachable via

Try to do Problem 4 in PS#2 at
