Abstract

In order to face the challenge of collecting data for deep extragalactic samples it is necessary to identify new galaxies and to collect the main information on them: coordinates, magnitudes, diameters and axis ratios, position angles and morphological types. The DENIS project is a great opportunity to do that. It is the first time that such a survey is undertaken by getting CCD images directly at the telescope for an entire hemisphere. This new way of making a survey provides us with incredibly high quality images compared with photographic counterparts.
