Item Type: Article
Additional Information: We present a method of determining an optimum set of telescope pointings and fibre allocations when carrying out SDSS multiobject spectroscopy, a method also applicable to future surveys. Loveday wrote the original C version of the tiling code. This paper has accrued over 200 citations.
