Retrieve object properties from NED and VO Archives, and calculate distance for a list of galaxies.

From an initial list of galaxy names, retrieve some of their properties from Virtual Observatory archives and services (NASA Extragalactic Database NED), and calculate others like Distance, based on the ones previously obtained (e.g. recession velocity, equatorial and galactic coordinates). The sample is filtered in a later step with criteria related to the angular size of the object and its declination. The goal is to build a sample of objects and their properties with up-to-date physical information in order to use it as the basis for a potential observational proposal. From a list of source names in one ASCII file, the workflow will build up three different VOTables that could be inspected via SAMP with VO-compliant software like Topcat. Result VOTables are Bibliography, ExternalLinks and ObjectProperties.
