SINGG and SUNGG are surveys of star formation in nearby galaxies selected by gas rich galaxies using Hα and ultraviolet observations. Since a gaseous medium is required for star formation, these surveys sample the galaxies that could form stars and provide a view of local star formation demographics which is not biased by optical and infrared selection effects. Galaxies in these surveys were selected based solely on their neutral gas (HI) content from the HI Parkes All Sky Survey (HIPASS).
