Abstract: HEALPix is useful for data analysis and visualization. Gaia is the ESA space astrometry cornerstone mission the main objective of wich is to astrometrically and spectro-photometrically map 109 celestial objects (mostly in our galaxy) with unprecedented accuracy. The data will be organized and stored in a central database at ESAC (Spain). The data treatment needs data analysis and visualization tools to accomplish a successful mission. The 3D Healpix-based skymaps are used as part of the interactive diagnostic tools as well as within the core processing. We present the HEALPix Java library and give some examples of its use within Gaia and Planck processing.
