Wide-field images of low redshift galaxies

This collection contains images of low redshift (z<0.1) galaxies obtained from both the CFHT Legacy Survey and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Monash University astronomers will use this data as part of a local mirror for specialised analyses of low redshift galaxies, including precision photometry and automated morphological measurements. This collection and its use will be a test bed for future Australian astronomical surveys that will (or may) make use of RDSI, including Skymapper and ASKAP.
