In large disk and spheroidal galaxies, spatially resolved abundance information can be extracted by analysis of either emission lines, absorption lines, or both, depending on the situation. This review recaps signiÐcant results as they apply to nondwarf galaxies, including the Milky Way, spiral disks and bulges, and elliptical and lenticular galaxies. Methods for determining abundances are explained in appendices. Conclusions that span the galaxy types treated here are as follows. All galaxies… Expand
