Abstract: Understanding how galaxies form and evolve is one of the main goal of extragalactic astronomy. One way to investigate it is to study sources where strong star formation is on-going it. A special class of object, the Lyα nebulae, seems to be the place of massive galaxy formation. We present in this proceeding a tool built to identify these nebula in photometric fields and characterize them: ATACAMA.
