Abstract: In the era of big surveys, integral-field units (IFUs) are starting to emerge as one of the most popular instruments to carry out forefront astronomy on large sets of objects and/or large portions of the sky. In this contribution I will highlight some of the most important efforts conducted with this kind of instrumentation, with emphasis on the role the CALIFA survey is playing in our understanding of the nearby Universe. I will focus on results related to the distribution of the angular momentum across the Hubble sequence as a way to unveil different pathways in the evolution of galaxies.
