7. Future work
The present paper is the first in a series which will be dedicated to nearby galaxies associated with WENSS radio sources. Since the overall WENSS catalogue is a factor of roughly 20 larger than the minisurvey used here, we expect in the end to be able to study samples of roughly 8000 to 10000 bright galaxies. This should give us a unique opportunity to analyze various correlations (e.g. dividing the galaxy sample according to galaxy type, radio spectral index, angular size).
