AbstractThe Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) Calibrator Survey consists of snapshot observations at 2.7 and 8.4 GHz of nearly 2000 flat-spectrum extragalactic sources selected from the Jodrell Bank–VLA Astrometric Survey (JVAS). When complete, this survey will assist in defining the extragalactic radio frame in the northern sky by providing positions for these sources which will be accurate on the milliarcsecond scale. This survey is accessible on the WWW athttp://magnolia.nrao.edu/vlba_calib/index.html.
