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 distances.
