N2 - Spanning minimal surfaces are 3-periodic minimal surfaces which contain straight lines, i.e. axes of 2-fold symmetry. We have used crystallographic knowledge of the space groups and of the corresponding arrangements of 2-fold axes involved for the derivation of new surfaces of this type and for their systematic description. Complete information on spanning minimal surfaces without self-intersections is given with respect to their symmetry and topology, together with some new results on spanning minimal surfaces with self-intersections along straight lines.
