Abstract The GALFA-HI Survey uses 21-cm spectral line data recorded with the Arecibo L-band Feed Array (ALFA), in an effort to map the neutral hydrogen content of the Galaxy and its nearby environment. The first full public release of data (Peek et al. 2011, ApJS in press) covers approximately 7500 square degrees, from observations spanning the epoch of May 2005 to February 2009. The second data release will include data from GALFA-HI observations to the end of 2010. We will describe the attributes of the survey, and most importantly, how to gain access to the data.
