The Asiago Database on Photometric Systems (ADPS) is a compilation of basic information and reference data on 167 optical, ultraviolet and infrared photometric systems. Thirty-four additional systems are briefly described. In compiling this census we have relied on published information only. In Paper II the photometric systems will be inter-compared, calibrated and parameterised by means of synthetic photometry using uniform criteria and the same set of input spectra and extinction laws.

Key words: photometry -- astronomical data bases --surveys
