The NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey (NDWFS) is a deep contiguous 9 square degree area in the BW, R, I, and K-bands conducted in the late-90s, using the prime focus CCD Mosaic camera on the KPNO Mayall 4-m telescope and the ONIS IR camera on the KPNO 2.1m. Primary goals include investigating the formation and evolution of red-envelope galaxies and the detection of luminous z > 4 star-forming galaxies and QSOs. Data products include the reduced and stacked survey images, and an object catalogue. Over the years extensive follow-up observations have been obtained of the NDWFS survey area by other ground-based surveys and space-based observational programs.
