The detailed velocity field of the ionized hydrogen has been observed between l = 301$^\circ$ and l = 324$^\circ$ as part of an H$\alpha$ Survey of the southern Milky Way. Analysis of the H$\alpha$ profiles shows six different velocity components. These H$\alpha$ observations, combined with multiwavelength and stellar data, are used to find the most probable distances of the different gas layers.
