The Near Infrared Photographic Sky Survey (NIPSS) and Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS) Point Source Catalogs represent potentially complementary databases for a variety of astronomical applications. In order to understand the problems associated with comparing these databases, and to develop a feeling for how these data might be used, we have begun the process of comparing selected NIPSS catalogs with the IRAS Point Source Catalog.
