The potential of AGN surveys extends to structure-related objectives: e.g. to study the size and properties of the NLR in AGN. From a complete sample of 1665 radio sources, we selected fifty-five with features on ~0.2-2 kpc scales (core/jet flux ratio <7:1) for further study. Here, we summarize the radio interferometric selection technique used and speculate on the prospects for optical surveys (using a size criterion).
