SWIRE, the largest SIRTF Legacy program, is a wide-area imaging survey covering ~65 square degrees in 7 high-latitude fields. It's objective is to trace the evolution of dusty, star-forming galaxies (MIPS), evolved stellar populations (IRAC),and active galactic nuclei as a function of environment (ie. spatial distribution/clustering) from 0.5 < z < 2.5. Ancillary data from many other wavelengths has been taken to compliment the infrared, including the deepest VLA image ever taken, the largest wide-area Chandra X-ray survey, and over 100 nights of optical/near-IR imaging to date. The details of these multiwavelength undertakings and their substantial scientific potential will be summarized including preliminary results from the optical/near-IR catalogues and photometric redshifts. This work is supported by NASA-SIRTF Legacy Program Funding to IPAC/UCSD.
