Table 7

Mode and dispersion (defined as the 68% HDI) of the distance distribution in our sample, in kpc from the Sun.

Field distance σ d D phot05 A 550 σ A
kpc kpc kpc mag mag

l =  +10°,b = 0° 4.0 1.8 5.1 14.0 1.6
l =  +6°,b = 0° 5.7 2.0 ~6 12.9 1.0
l = 0°,b = 1° 7.3 2.3 7.6 7.7 0.8
l = −6°,b = 0° 9.2 2.5 9.4 10.6 1.0

Notes. Dphot05 corresponds to the field distance derived by Babusiaux & Gilmore (2005) before scaling the field l = 0°,b = 1° to 8 kpc. A550 and σA also provide the mode and dispersion of the extinction distribution of the samples, A550 being the absorption at 550 nm (see Sect. 4).
