VISIONS - VISTA Star Formation Atlas

Meingast, Stefan; Alves, J.; Boui, H.; Ascenso, J.

In this talk I will present the new ESO public survey VISIONS. Starting in early 2017 we will use the ESO VISTA survey telescope in a 550 h long programme to map the largest molecular cloud complexes within 500 pc in a multi-epoch program. The survey is optimized for measuring the proper motions of young stellar objects invisible to Gaia and mapping the cloud-structure with extinction. VISIONS will address a series of ISM topics ranging from the connection of dense cores to YSOs and the dynamical evolution of embedded clusters to variations in the reddening law on both small and large scales.
