Abstract

Searching for globular cluster candidates in nearby galaxies such as M31 is the first step to study the characteristics of extragalactic globular cluster systems. Previous searches for M31 globular clusters were mostly based on visual inspection of photograpic plates. We have selected globular cluster candidates from a wide-field Washington CCD survey of M31, using various methods: color-magnitude diagrams, color-color diagrams, point spread function subtraction and visual inspection of the objects. The efficiency and accuracy of these methods for finding globular clusters are presented.
