Gaia data access
Gaia data is accessible from several data centres: the ESA Gaia Archive and our four partner data centres: Institut für Astrophysik Potsdam (AIP), Astronomisches Rechen-Institut (ARI), ASI Space Science Data Centre (ASI SSDC) and Centre de Données astronomiques de Strasbourg (CDS). Next to the Gaia Archive and its partner data centres, the affiliate data centres bring the data to their own institutes or the community as well.

In addition to the Gaia Archive, several partner data centres offer access to the Gaia data. These partner data centres are integrated in CU9, the coordination unit of our Data Processing and Analysis Consortium responsible for Catalogue Access. They offer some extra services in coordination with the main Gaia Archive.

In addition to the Gaia Archive and the Gaia partner data centres, some other institutes host a full copy of the Gaia data. Some of these affiliate data centres host a local copy for use internally at the institute, while others make the copy available to the community as well. The affiliate data centres are in contact with CU9, the coordination unit of our Data Processing and Analysis Consortium responsible for Catalogue Access.
