The 6dF Galaxy Survey (6dFGS) has mapped the nearby universe over nearly half the sky. Its 136,304 spectra have yielded 110,256 new extragalactic redshifts and a new catalogue of 125,071 galaxies. A peculiar velocity survey of 11,000 galaxies is measuring galaxy masses and bulk motions.

All redshifts and spectra are available through the 6dFGS Online Database, hosted at the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh. An online 6dFGS atlas is available through the University of Cape Town.
