Abstract: GAIA, the Graphical Astronomy and Image Analysis Tool, is a derivative of the ESO Skycat program. It is being actively developed in the U.K., by the Starlink project, as a way of providing a graphically rich and interactive environment for doing 2D astronomy. Skycat provides a fundamental image, graphics and web catalogue context, which GAIA extends by providing image analysis tools. This article describes new tools recently added to GAIA and gives a brief description of the technologies that underly it.
