We have begun a census of various stellar groups in Local Group Galaxies, using the wide field camera on the Isaac Newton Telescope on La Palma. Here we present a preliminary color-magnitude diagram for the dwarf irregular galaxy IC-10. At present time, metallicity of IC-10 is measured to be Z = 0.005 (Garnett 1990). Comparison with recent literature values of reddening and distance suggest that IC-10's distance is ~ 1 Mpc. Our comprehensive wide-field survey encompasses both broad (g′, r′, i′) and narrow-band (O iii, He ii, Hα, S ii, Strömgren y) observations to look for emission-line objects, including Wolf-Rayet stars and Luminous Blue Variables. The analysis also yields the coordinates of massive stars to an accuracy sufficient for follow-up multi-object spectroscopic observations.
