UBVRI photoelectric photometry and CORAVEL radial velocities have been
collected for six field RR Lyrae variables, namely SW And, YZ Cap, SW
Dra, SS For, RV Phe and V440 Sgr, in order to apply the Baade-Wesselink
method and determine their radii, distances and absolute luminosities.
In this paper the data are presented, along with the light, color and
radial velocity curves. In two following ... [Show full abstract] papers the application of the
Baade-Wesselink method and its results will be discussed in detail.
