Abstract

Due to their compactness, persistence and slow motion, Class II CH3OH masers are excellent targets for parallax and proper motion measurements for massive star-forming regions in the Galactic Disk. These measurements can be used to improve our understanding of the spiral structure and dynamics of the Milky Way. At the same time, Class II CH3OH masers can also be used to study gas kinematics close to the exciting star, tracing rotation, infall and/or outflow motions.
