The CORNISH (Co-Ordinated Radio ‘N’ Infrared Survey for High-mass star formation) project is the radio continuum part of a series of multi-wavelength surveys of the Galactic Plane that focus on the northern GLIMPSE-I region (10° < l <65°, |b| < 1°) observed by the SPITZER satellite in the mid-infrared (Churchwell et al. 2009). CORNISH has delivered a complementary 5 GHz arcsecond resolution, radio-continuum survey to address key questions in high-mass star formation as well as many other areas of astrophysics.
