A new method for distance estimation in the galactic plane.
Summary. A procedure for estimating distances near the Galactic plane is proposed, following the original work of Creze' (1972). The distances obtained depend upon independently determined extinctions and distances of planetary nebulae. For a given object, color excesses and celestial coordinates must be observed to estimate distance. More accurate distance can be inferred if the distance moduli, my - My, are observed. Key words: distances - reddening - extinction
