The broad objective of 11HUGS is to understand the star formation demographics of the local volume, through measurements of the H-alpha and UV emission in a complete sample of nearby galaxies. The survey data also provide a foundation for follow-up studies of the HII region populations, chemical abundances, and ISM properties of galaxies in the local universe. The 11HUGS dataset is being further augmented by Spitzer mid- and far-infrared imaging through the Local Volume Legacy Survey, which is delivering the full suite of UV, H-alpha, mid- and far-infrared imaging to the astronomical community.
11HUGS is the result of a team-effort involving myself, Robert Kennicutt, data analyst Sanae Akiyama (Steward), Jose Funes
