All of the rotational spectral lines observed and reported in the open literature for 55 triatomic molecules have been tabulated. The isotopic molecular species, assigned quantum numbers, observed frequency, estimated measurement uncertainty and reference are given for each transition reported. In addition to correcting a number of misprints and errors in the literature cited, the spectral lines for approximately 15 molecules have been refit to produce a comprehensive and consistent analysis of all the data extracted from various literature sources. Both measured and predicted transition frequencies are listed for several isotopic forms of HCN, H2O, H2S, and OCS. The derived molecular properties, such as rotational and centrifugal distortion constants, hyperfine structure constants, electric dipole moments, and rotational g-factors are listed with one standard deviation uncertainty for all values.
