6dFGS 
name: 6dfgs | type: Survey | Heath Jones [javascript protected email address] | website | docs |

The 6dF Galaxy Survey (6dFGS) measured the redshifts of around 150 000 galaxies, and the peculiar velocities of a 15 000-member subsample, over almost the entire southern sky. The targets are all galaxies brighter than K_tot = 12.75 in the 2MASS Extended Source Catalog (XSC), supplemented by 2MASS and SuperCOSMOS galaxies that complete the sample to limits of (H, J, r_F, b_J) = (13.05, 13.75, 15.6, 16.75). Central to the survey is the Six-Degree Field (6dF) multifibre spectrograph, an instrument able to record 150 simultaneous spectra over the 5.7 degree field of the UK Schmidt Telescope. Spectra are obtained in two observations using separate V and R gratings, that together give R ~ 1000 over at least 400-750 nm and signal-to-noise ratio ~10 per pixel. Redshift measurements are obtained semi-automatically, and are assigned a quality value based on visual inspection.

DEVILS 
name: devils | type: Survey | Luke Davies [javascript protected email address] | website | docs |

DEVILS is a spectroscopic campaign at the Anglo-Australian Telescope aimed at bridging the near and distant Universe by producing the highest completeness survey of galaxies and groups at intermediate redshifts (0.3<z<1.0). Our sample will consist of ~58k galaxies to Ymag<21.2, over ~6deg2 to >95% completeness in three well studies deep extragalactic fields (COSMOS, ECDFS and XMM-LSS).
