Abstract: Ultraviolet and visible imaging of the blue compact galaxy NGC 4194 was obtained to survey the star-forming knots in the center of this galaxy. Photometry and image analysis were performed on these regions. Comparison with evolutionary tracks indicates many of the knots are reddened with a typical E(B-V)~0.3. The knot ages range from 3×106-108 years. Some of the knots may have masses 3-5×105 Msolar. The FUV fluxes correspond to the flux from 60-3.8×103 O5V stars.
