Its proximity and almost face-on inclination means that it projects over a large area on the sky, making it an ideal candidate for wide-field CCD mosaic imaging. Photometry was obtained for more than 106 stars covering a 74'x56' field centered on M33. Main-sequence, supergiant branch, red giant branch, and asymptotic giant branch (AGB) populations are identified and classified based on broadband V and I photometry. Narrowband filters are used to measure spectral features allowing, the AGB population to be further divided into C and M star types. The galactic structure of M33 is examined using star counts, color-color, and color-magnitude-selected stellar populations. We use the C to M star ratio to investigate the metallicity gradient in the disk of M33. Description: Multiband photometric data were collected on 1999 October 30 and 31 and 2000 December 3 and 4 with the 3.58m Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT). File Summary:
