We present completed observations of the NGC 7448 galaxy group and background volume as part of the blind neutral hydrogen Arecibo Galaxy Environment Survey. Our observations cover a region spanning 5°× 4°, over a redshift range of approximately −2000 <cz < 20 000 km s−1. A total of 334 objects are detected, mostly in three overdensities at cz ∼ 7500, cz ∼ 9600 and cz ∼ 11 400 km s−1. The galaxy density is extremely high (15 deg−2) and many (∼24 per cent) show signs of extended H i emission, including some features as much as 800 kpc in projected length. We describe the overall characteristics of this environment: kinematics, typical galaxy colours and mass-to-light ratios, and substructure. To aid in the cataloguing of this data set, we present a new fits viewer (frelled: fits Realtime Explorer of Low Latency in Every Dimension). This incorporates interactive source cataloguing tools which increase our source extraction speed by approximately a factor of 50.
