Near Infrared ( band) surface photometry has been obtained for 102 (88 late-type) Virgo cluster galaxies. A subset of 20 galaxies was also imaged in the H band. Magnitudes and diameters within the 21.5 and 22.0 mag arcsec-2 isophote, concentration indices and total H and magnitudes are derived. Basic statistical properties of a complete sample of spiral galaxies spanning the range are given.
Key words: galaxies: fundamental parameters / galaxies: photometry / infrared: galaxies / galaxies: clusters: Virgo cluster
based on observations taken at the Calar Alto Observatory, operated by the Max-Planck-Institut für Astronomie (Heidelberg) jointly with the Spanish National Commission for Astronomy.
