We present the Photometry and Rotation Curve Observations from Extragalactic Surveys (PROBES) compendium of extended rotation curves for 3163 late-type spirals, with matching homogeneous multiband photometry for 1677 of them. PROBES rotation curves originally extracted from H alpha long-slit spectra and aperture synthesis H i (21cm) velocity maps typically extend out to a median 2 R (e) (or 1 R (23.5,r )). Our uniform photometry takes advantage of GALEX, DESI-LIS, and WISE images and the software AutoProf to yield multiband azimuthally averaged surface brightness profiles that achieve depths greater than 25 mag arcsec(-2) (FUV, NUV), 27 mag arcsec(-2) (g, r), and 26 mag arcsec(-2) (z, W1, and W2). With its library of spatially resolved profiles and an extensive table of structural parameters, the versatile PROBES data set will benefit studies of galaxy structure and formation.
