The tiling algorithm for the 6dF Galaxy Survey

Campbell, Lachlan; Saunders, Will; Colless, Matthew


The 6-degree Field Galaxy Survey (6dFGS) is a spectroscopic survey of the southern sky, which aims to provide positions and velocities of galaxies in the nearby Universe. When completed the survey will produce approximately 170 000 redshifts and 15 000 peculiar velocities. The survey is being carried out on the UK Schmidt telescope at the Anglo Australian Observatory (AAO), using the 6dF robotic fibre positioner and spectrograph system. We present here the adaptive tiling algorithm developed to...[Show more]
