Galaxies' connection to the cosmic web allows us to use them as tracers of the matter distribution in the Universe and make precise measurements of large scale structure. The next galaxy surveys with eBOSS and DESI will expand the cosmic volumes probed with galaxies and provide unprecedented statistical power.
