We present the PPAK Integral Field Spectroscopy (IFS) Nearby Galaxies Survey (PINGS), a two-dimensional spectroscopic mosaicking of 17 nearby disc galaxies in the optical wavelength range. This project represents the first attempt to obtain continuous coverage spectra of the whole surface of a galaxy in the nearby Universe. The final data set comprises more than 50 000 individual spectra, covering in total an observed area of nearly 80 arcmin 2 . The observations will be supplemented with broad… 
PPAK Wide-field Integral Field Spectroscopy of NGC 628 – I. The largest spectroscopic mosaic on a single galaxy
We present a wide-field Integral Field Spectroscopy (IFS) survey on the nearby face-on Sbc galaxy NGC 628, comprising 11094 individual spectra, covering a nearly circular field-of-view of ∼6 arcmin
PPAK Wide-field Integral Field Spectroscopy of NGC 628: II. Emission line abundance analysis
In this second paper of the series, we present the two-dimensional (2D) emission line abundance analysis of NGC 628, the largest object within the PPAK Integral Field Spectroscopy (IFS) Nearby
PPAK Wide field Integral Field Spectroscopy of NGC 628 – III. Stellar population properties
We present a stellar population analysis of the nearby, face-on, SA(s)c galaxy, NGC628, which is part of the PPAK IFS Nearby Galaxies Survey (PINGS). The data cover a field of view of ~6 arcmin in
Integral Field Spectroscopy of a sample of nearby galaxies. I. Sample, Observations and Data Reduction ⋆
Aims. Integral field spectroscopy (IFS) is a powerful approach to studying nearby galaxies since it enables a detailed analysis of their resolved physical properties. Here we present our study of a
The SAMI Galaxy Survey: Instrument specification and target selection
The SAMI Galaxy Survey will observe 3400 galaxies with the Sydney-AAO Multi- object Integral-field spectrograph (SAMI) on the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) in a 3-year survey which began in 2013.
CALIFA, the Calar Alto Legacy Integral Field Area survey : I. Survey presentation
The final product of galaxy evolution through cosmic time is the population of galaxies in the local universe. These galaxies are also those that can be studied in most detail, thus providing a
Chandra Survey of Nearby Galaxies: The Catalog
We searched in the public archive of the Chandra X-ray Observatory as of March 2016 and assembled a sample of 719 galaxies within 50 Mpc with ACIS observations available. By cross-correlation with
The CALIFA survey across the Hubble sequence: Spatially resolved stellar population properties in galaxies
Various different physical processes contribute to the star formation and stellar mass assembly histories of galaxies. One important approach to understanding the significance of these different

Abstract Two classes of spectro-imagers are available, the first one, usually based on grisms, allows to cover intermediate fields of view and wide spectral ranges (decreasing when the spectral
The Study of Nebular Emission on Nearby Spiral Galaxies in the IFU Era
A new generation of wide-field emission-line surveys based on integral field units (IFU) is allowing us to obtain spatially resolved information of the gas-phase emission in nearby late-type


The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey: spectra and redshifts
The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) is designed to measure redshifts for approximately 250 000 galaxies. This paper describes the survey design, the spectroscopic observations, the redshift
SINGS: The SIRTF Nearby Galaxies Survey
The SIRTF Nearby Galaxy Survey is a comprehensive infrared imaging and spectroscopic survey of 75 nearby galaxies. Its primary goal is to characterize the infrared emission of galaxies and their
2MASS large galaxy atlas
We present the largest galaxies as seen in the near-infrared (1–2 μm), imaged with the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS), ranging in angular size from 1' to 15. We highlight the 100 largest in the
We present integrated optical spectrophotometry for a sample of 417 nearby galaxies. Our observations consist of spatially integrated, S/N = 10-100 spectroscopy between 3600 and 6900 ? at ~8 ? FWHM
Morphologies and stellar populations of galaxies in the core of Abell 2218
We present a study of the stellar populations and morphologies of galaxies in the core of the galaxy cluster Abell 2218. Integral field spectroscopy (IFS) observations were performed using PMAS in
Spatially resolved spectroscopy of planetary nebulae and their halos - I. Five galactic disk objects
Strong mass loss off stars at the tip of the asymptotic giant branch (AGB) profoundly affects properties of these stars and their surroundings, including the subsequent planetary nebula (PN) stage.
PPAK integral field spectroscopy survey of the Orion nebula : Data release
Aims:We present a low-resolution spectroscopic survey of the Orion nebula. The data are released for public use. We show the possible applications of this dataset analyzing some of the main
NGC 3310 and its tidal debris: remnants of galaxy evolution
NGC 3310 is a local galaxy with an intense, ongoing starburst thought to result from a merger with a companion galaxy. It has several known tidal features in the northwest and southern regions around
Tidally Triggered Star Formation in Close Pairs of Galaxies: Major and Minor Interactions
We study star formation in a sample of 345 galaxies in 167 pairs and compact groups drawn from the original CfA2 Redshift Survey and from a follow-up search for companions. We construct our sample
H I 21 centimeter observations and I-band CCD surface photometry of spiral galaxies behind the virgo cluster and toward its antipode
In a companion paper we describe a project in which we seek to resolve the controversies over corrections for the peculiar velocity of the Local Group toward the Virgo Cluster and the Malmquist bias.
