The Calar Alto Legacy Integral Field Area (CALIFA) survey provides spatially resolved spectroscopic information for 667 galaxies, mainly within the local universe (0.005 < z < 0.03).

CALIFA data was obtained using the PPAK integral field unit (IFU), with a hexagonal field-of-view of 1.3 square arcmin, with a 100% covering factor by adopting a three-pointing dithering scheme. has been taken in two setups: V500 (6 Å bin size, 646 galaxies) and V1200 (2.3 Å bin size, 484 galaxies). A final product ("COMBO") combining both data sets, covering 3700-7500 Å at 6 Å bin size, is made availble for 484 galaxies.

CALIFA is a legacy survey, intended for the community. This is the (final) Data Release 3.
