Fig. 3


Left: Aitoff projection of the spatial distribution of dwarfs in the AVOCADO sample (orange) and of K < 11.75 mag galaxies in the 2MASS Redshift Survey (black, Huchra et al. 2011) in the 2000 < cz < 6000 km s-1 range. Note that dwarf galaxies perfectly trace the underlying large-scale structure of voids and filaments. The 2MRS, being an all-sky, magnitude-limited survey, provides an excellent sample for studing the environment in which AVOCADO dwarfs evolve. Right: Hockey-puck plot (see Huchra et al. 2011) of the same two samples, showing a projection from the northern celestial pole.
