Abstract: The current largest all-sky NIR survey is 2MASS, which has a depth of Ks = 14.3 mag and a seeing of 2.5″, which does not match the current optical surveys well. Combining VISTA and WFCAM Public Survey data into a single all-sky survey will cover > 90% of the sky to a depth of K∼18.2 mag in the wide area surveys, and with a typical seeing of ∼0.9″. However, the data from these surveys is extremely heterogeneous.
