AbstractThe combination of the wide field of Schmidt telescope photographic plates with fast measuring machines such as COSMOS and APM, had a major impact on the study of the global properties of the Magellanic Clouds. Results (based on UKST data) regarding the stellar populations and dynamics of the Small Magellanic Cloud are described here in some detail. The stellar content and kinematics of the intercloud region are also outlined, with particular emphasis on the importance of this region in
