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 measurements and the survey data base. The 2dFGRS uses the 2dF multifibre spectrograph on the Anglo-Australian Telescope, which is capable of observing 400 objects simultaneously over a 2° diameter field. The source catalogue for the survey is a revised and extended version of the APM galaxy catalogue… 

THE 2MASS REDSHIFT SURVEY—DESCRIPTION AND DATA RELEASE

We present the results of the 2MASS Redshift Survey (2MRS), a ten-year project to map the full three-dimensional distribution of galaxies in the nearby universe. The Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS)

The 6dF Galaxy Survey: Samples, observational techniques and the first data release

The 6dF Galaxy Survey (6dFGS) aims to measure the redshifts of around 150 000 galaxies, and the peculiar velocities of a 15 000-member subsample, over almost the entire southern sky. When complete,

Faint 1.4-GHz radio sources in the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey

We have used the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) to search for faint radio sources in a ∼3 deg 2 region of sky covered by the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS). Over the region surveyed,

Near‐infrared and optical luminosity functions from the 6dF Galaxy Survey

Luminosity functions and their integrated luminosity densities are presented for the 6-degree Field Galaxy Survey (6dFGS). This ongoing survey ultimately aims to measure around 150 000 redshifts and

Spectroscopic detection of quasars in the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey

The 100 000 spectra from the 2 degree Field Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) in the 100k Public Data Release represent the largest single compilation of galaxy spectra available. By virtue of its

The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey: galaxy luminosity functions per spectral type

We calculate the optical bJ luminosity function of the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) for different subsets defined by their spectral properties. These spectrally selected subsets are defined

THE DEEP2 GALAXY REDSHIFT SURVEY: DESIGN, OBSERVATIONS, DATA REDUCTION, AND REDSHIFTS

We describe the design and data analysis of the DEEP2 Galaxy Redshift Survey, the densest and largest high-precision redshift survey of galaxies at z ∼ 1 completed to date. The survey was designed to

The local hole revealed by galaxy counts and redshifts

The redshifts of ≈250 000 galaxies are used to study the local hole and its associated peculiar velocities. The sample, compiled from the 6dF Galaxy Redshift Survey and Sloan Digital Sky Survey,

Photometric Redshifts and Stellar Masses for Galaxies from the DESI Legacy Imaging Surveys

We present a catalog of photometric redshifts and stellar masses for galaxies from imaging surveys serving the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument project. The imaging footprints cover an area of

FLASH redshift survey — I. Observations and catalogue

The FLAIR Shapley‐Hydra (FLASH) redshift survey catalogue consists of 4613 galaxies brighter than bJ = 16.7 (corrected for Galactic extinction) over a 700-deg 2 region of sky in the general direction
