AbstractIn this, the first in a series of three papers concerning the SuperCOSMOS Sky Survey (SSS), we give an introduction and user guide to the survey programme. We briefly describe other wide-field surveys and compare them with our own. We give examples of the data, and make a comparison of the accuracies of the various image parameters available with those from the other surveys providing similar data; we show that the SSS data base and interface offer advantages over these surveys. Some science applications of the data are also described and some limitations discussed. The series of three papers constitutes a comprehensive description and user guide for the SSS.
