Galactic Archaeology seeks to reveal the formation and evolution history of the Milky Way. This is being pursued by constructing a multi-dimensional chart of the Milky Way using the great wealth of data now available from stellar spectroscopic surveys. The data encompasses a full range of parameters from kinematics and dynamics, stellar properties including chemical abundances, to stellar age and mass. This review will present the impressive suite of current and upcoming surveys and highlight key scientific discoveries.
