Extract

Early large scale radio surveys of the sky were made with instruments with poor imaging quality and were limited to measuring positions and brightnesses of discrete sources. In recent decades radio interferometric arrays have dramatically increased their speed, sensitivity and ability to image the sky and several large scale radio surveys are currently being made with imaging instruments. One of these surveys is discussed in this paper.
