Astronomical surveys generally involving imaging or mapping of regions of the sky using Telescopes. The surveys are usually restricted to one range of electromagnetic wavelengths (e.g. light or radio) or to measurements of the flux of one type of particle (e.g. cosmic rays). Surveys are generally performed as part of the production of an astronomical catalogue.
