Abstract: We report on the first results of our ground-survey of H_2O masers to establish a list of suitable candidates for space-VLBI observations. Due to the large VSOP/HALCA baselines and its limited sensitivity only very strong and compact sources will be detected. The best candidates from this survey will be part of The VSOP Survey which intends to observe a large number of continuum and maser sources. This systematic and uniform survey, of a large number of sources, will be invaluable in determining the properties of the sub-milliarcsecond emission from maser sources.
