Stars shape the evolution of galaxies like the Milky Way and the best way to view the Milky Way is via Galactic Plane surveys at all wavelengths. I will discuss how astronomers use these surveys to understand how, where, and why stars form in the Milky Way and what this can tell us about star formation in other galaxies.
