Spectroscopic and Photometric Nearby Field Galaxy Survey

Poster paper presented at IAU Symposium 171, June 26-30 1995, Heidelberg


ABSTRACT

On this poster we report the progress of our spectral and imaging survey of nearby field galaxies.
This survey will be used to obtain an accurate description of star formation rates and star formation history of galaxies in the nearby universe and will serve as a benchmark for interpreting the spectra and number counts of distant galaxies.
At this time, about 40% of the observations have been obtained.
