Resumo

We present galkin, a novel compilation of kinematic measurements tracing the rotation curve of our Galaxy together with a tool to treat the data. The compilation is optimised to Galactocentric radii between 3 and 20 kpc and includes the kinematics of gas, stars and masers in a total of 2780 measurements carefully collected from almost four decades of literature. A simple, user-friendly tool is provided to select, treat and retrieve the full database.
