The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) satellite has completed the first phase of its mission, an all-sky survey covering the entire EUV spectrum (70--760~\AA). We will present a large-format (1 m by 1 m) display of the exposure-corrected survey map in the Lexan/boron band (70--180~\AA). This map came from the initial processing of the telemetry, which was completed one month after the end of the survey. Some interesting EUV objects, such as bright point sources and diffuse features, are visible, as well as various artifacts, such as calibration pointings, UV leaks, and data gaps. A selection of both types of features will be highlighted and briefly described. We will also describe some analysis procedures to be used during future reprocessing of the telemetry to eliminate the known artifacts.

This work has been supported by NASA contract NAS5-29298.
