Disc scalelength (h) for 30000 galaxies from the Sloan Digitized Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 7, in the r-band. Also included is the Asymmetry parameter for each galaxy. Virtual Observatory methods and tools were used to define, retrieve and analyze the images for this unprecedentedly large sample classified as spiral galaxies in the LEDA catalogue. These parameters are also available for all other SDSS bands (u,g,i,z), and they can be retrieved from the Author. An extensive discussion about the errors involved in the derived parameters can be found in Fathi et al. (2010MNRAS.406.1595F) and Fathi (2010ApJ...722L.120F) (1 data file).
