Westerbork observations of neutral Hydrogen
in Irregular and SPiral galaxies
WHISP is a survey of the neutral hydrogen component in spiral and
irregular galaxies with the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT).
Its aim is to obtain maps of the distribution and velocity structure of
HI in 500 to 1000 galaxies, increasing the order of well-analyzed HI
observations of galaxies by an order of magnitude. This uniform
database of datacubes and (global) parameters will serve as a basis for
research in many areas, for example: dark halo's, the effects of
environment on the structure and growth of HI disks, and galaxy
