We present results on the stellar populations of a sample of 18 late-type spirals, based on data acquired with the integral-field spectrograph SAURON at the WHT. We present the two-dimensional line-strength maps, the central line indices, and estimate the star formation time-scale. In an exponentially declining SFR scenario, we find a trend between the time-scale and the central velocity dispersion: more massive galaxies show shorter burst durations. A detailed study on these data is published by Ganda et al. (2007).
