Abstract

We present first results from the quantitative spectroscopic analysis of 266 Galactic O-type stars targeted by the IACOB and OWN surveys (implying the largest sample of stars of this type analyzed homogeneously). We also evaluate what is the present situation regarding available information about distances, as provided by the Hipparcos and Gaia missions.
