We present the results of more than 10 years of monitoring of the water vapor maser emission in 14 star forming regions obtained with the Medicina 32-m radiotelescope. The sample of objects covers a large range of luminosities of the associated FIR sources. In order to present in a compact and representative way the large amount of data available, we give for each source: a time-velocity-flux density plot, the time dependent integrated flux, the lower and upper envelopes of the maser emission,
more » ... he frequency of the maser occurrence as a function of velocity, and the mean velocity averaged over the observing period. A brief morphological description of the environment of the maser source is also given. The present data form the basis for a discussion of the main properties of the water vapor maser emission to be presented in a forthcoming paper.
