Wide field imaging and spectroscopic surveys of the M31 system have revealed a complex web of substructure surrounding the classical visible galaxy, including: giant stellar streams; extended disk-like rotating components; unusual classes of stellar clusters; many new satellite galaxies; and even significant tidal streams emanating from M33 and NGC147 . In this talk I will review some of the recent work on surveys in these systems and in particular discuss the latest results obtained from ground-based and space-based imaging and spectroscopic data.
