(spectroscopic survey of 100,000 high-redshift galaxies)

The VIMOS-VLT Deep Survey (VVDS, originally called the VIRMOS-VLT Deep Survey) is a high-redshift survey using the VIMOS multi-object spectrograph/integral field spectrograph on the ESO VLT in a number of survey fields totaling 4 square degrees. Spectra were recorded for more than 100,000 galaxies, with redshifts at least to 5.
