Much recent progress in astrophysics has been driven by new panoptic surveys. The SDSS survey, in which MPIA was the first European partner institute, has been the most successful ground-based project in decades. MPIA is closely involved in the planning and exploitation of the Pan-STARRS1 survey.

These surveys have both imaging and spectroscopy components.
