Abstract

Observations for the Two-Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) have recently begun at the northern hemisphere site. The project is now in the final phases of tuning the data analysis software in preparation for running the “pipeline” at full bore. The path to completing the extragalactic portion of the pipeline, called GALWORKS, was complicated. It required an enormous number of ideas, compromises, and decisions to generate as accurate and as useful a set of data as we possibly can from the raw survey data.
