The recently completed I-band SBF Survey of Galaxy Distances contains about 300 galaxy distances within cz ≲ 4000 km/s. These data allow for good constraints on the local mass density and velocity fields. The mass density parameter β I ≡ Ω0.6/b I , where b I is the biasing factor of the IRAS redshift survey galaxies, is found to be β I ≍ 0.45.
