All available experimental measurements of the spectrum of the Ag+ ion are critically reviewed. Systematic shifts are removed from the measured wavelengths. The compiled list of critically evaluated wavelengths is used to derive a comprehensive list of energy levels with well-defined uncertainties. Some of the older work, in particular on the ionization energy, is found to be incorrect. A revised value of the ionization energy, 173283(7) cm1, is derived from the new set of energy levels. A set of critically evaluated transition probabilities is given.
