[130.05] A Survey of Local Group Galaxies

P. Massey (Lowell Obs.), P. W. Hodge (Univ. Washington), S. Holmes (College of Charleston), G. Jacoby (WIYN), N. L. King (STScI), K. Olsen (CTIO/NOAO), A. Saha (KPNO/NOAO), C. Smith (CTIO/NOAO)

We are carrying out wide-field surveys of the Local Group galaxies currently active in forming stars using the Mosaic CCD cameras on the Kitt Peak and Cerro Tololo 4-m telescopes, with photometric calibration being obtained with the Lowell Observatory 1.1-m and the CTIO 0.9-m telescopes. The images are being obtained in UBVRI, Halpha, [OIII], and [SII]. To date, we have completed about 80% of the fields, with the remainder to be completed this coming year. We are releasing the final, reduced, stacked images for each galaxy as we complete the reductions, with the first release planned to coincide with this meeting. If the weather and the NOAO TAC are kind to us, the remainder of the images will be released at the Jan 2003 meeting. Our work on the photometry is progressing, and we hope to complete catalogs for all galaxies by January 2003 as well. Meanwhile, the first science papers based on these images are being presented elsewhere at this meeting; see Holmes et al. This work is partially supported through NSF Grant AST-0093060.
