The regular survey of LAMOST began in September 2012 and will end in June 2017 after the completion of 5 observation seasons. In the first regular survey, the projects of the LAMOST Experiment for Galactic Understanding and Exploration (LEGUE) and the LAMOST Extra-GAlactic Survey (LEGAS) have obtained many scientific achievements. The LEGUE project yields a unique data set of more than 6 million stellar spectra and allows one to study the stellar populations, chemical composition, kinematics and structure of the disk and the halo, the gravitational potential and dark matter distribution, the interstellar dust extinction, rare objects (e.g. extremely metal-poor or hyper-velocity stars), and ultimately advance our understanding of the assemblage of the Milky Way and other galaxies and the origin of regularity and diversity of their properties.
