We study several geometric constructions associated to the map n : Q BU(1) -► BU. Using techniques of infinite loop spaces, we define a set of universal characteristic classes ck , proving that they agree with the Chern classes. We get geometric interpretations of them in terms of the k-tuple points of immersions. Also, we show some cases where this description is useful.
