Abstract

The large-scale structure of the Galaxy can be studied through the non-thermal and thermal continuum, the 21-cm HI line, the hydrogen recombination lines, and the OH and CH2O absorption, while in addition any line observations can contribute to knowledge of the large-scale kinematics. The 21-cm line has still provided the most information, with the other components entering the picture mainly through confirmatory or comparative data.
