Abstract

The scope and status of the UKIDSS Galactic Plane Survey is described. Some issues regarding automatic processing of crowded fields and comparisons with other surveys are identified and some early results are presented. The detection of more than 100 new clusters and 16 new high amplitude variables are reported.
