Comparison of the limiting depths and areas of various near-infrared surveys, both existing and planned. Note that the Euclid mission will not observe broadband K: imaging photometry will be in the Y, J, and H bands, reaching a depth of 24 mag in each for the wide survey, and two magnitudes deeper in a smaller (40 deg2) deep survey. VICS82 fills a niche in the area–depth parameter space linking small, deep surveys with those that cover much larger solid angles to shallower depth.
