The homogeneous set of apparent magnitudes in the three photometric bands that the DeNIS survey will provide may be fruitfully combined with the astrometric and kinematical data of the Hipparcos satellite in order to apply a maximum-likelihood method and derive absolute magnitudes, kinematics and spatial distribution for extensive samples of stars.
