Redshift Survey

(survey of the universe aiming at three dimensions)

A Redshift Survey is an Astronomical Survey gathering Redshifts of galaxies, Galaxy Clusters, and other phenomena (e.g., supernovae) aiming to map the universe in three dimensions. It produces a literal map in Redshift Space that can be interpreted as three space dimensions using Hubble's Law.
