Abstract: The APASS photometric survey covers the whole sky, from Pole to Pole, and has measured in Landolt B, V and Sloan g',r',i' bands all stars in the range 10.0≤V≤17.0 over about four distinct epochs between 2009 and 2013. The photometry is accurate to 0.02 mag and the astrometry to 0.17 arcsec. At the time of writing 8 incremental Data Releases have been issued covering ≥50 million stars. The final survey products will be ready by the end of 2014 and will include 100 million stars. Extension to brighter stars (7.5≤V≤10.0) and additional bands (u', z' and Y) is underway.
