This unique atlas is the first to present maps of the structure that exists in the distribution in space of the nearby galaxies. The atlas has three groups of maps. The first group illustrates the distribution of 2,367 known galaxies on the plane of the sky. The second group is a representation of the three-dimensional characteristics of the same group of galaxies. The third suite of maps situates the nearby galaxies within the structure on a much larger cosmic scale.
