The Javalambre Physics of the accelerating universe Astrophysical Survey (JPAS) is a 54 narrow band very wide field Cosmological Survey with a purpose built dedicated 2.5m telescope and a 4.7 sq deg camera with 1.2Gpix. A smaller complementary survey, APLUS with 12 filters (for the calibration of JPAS) will commence in the second semester of 2015. These spanish-brazilian surveys provide us with a unique window for studying the stellar populations of nearby galaxies. For instance, with its wide observing area we will be able to probe globular clusters systems in different environments in a homogeneous way. In this talk I will present results based on simulations showing the potential of these surveys for stellar systems science in the local Universe.
