Welcome to the new Gaia@AIP website

In preparation for the upcoming second data release we updated Gaia@AIP to the new version of our Daiquiri framework. We also switched from MariaDB to PostgreSQL for the underlying database system.

We migrated your personal accounts and the metadata of all your jobs to the new system, but due to the changes to the database system we only restored the result tables querying GDR1. More information is about the migration is given here.

Gaia second data release (GDR2)

The second data release of the Gaia mission was published on 25 April 2018. As with the first release, the data was simultaneously released through all Partner Data Centres including Gaia@AIP. More information is available at the ESA Gaia archive.

Gaia first data release (GDR1)

The first release catalog includes positions and G-band magnitudes for more than a billion sources. The five-parameter astrometric solution (positions, parallaxes and proper motions) is available for over 2 million stars that are shared between Gaia and Tycho-2 and Hipparcos catalogs. More information about the release can be found here.
