About three years after Gaia was set into orbit, the first release of Gaia data, DR1, has been published by ESA and DPAC. Gaia’s first archive contains the results from the analysis of the initial 14 months of mission data. Outstandingly, it includes TGAS, Gaia-Tycho2 astrometric solution for about 2 million stars up to visible magnitude around 11.5.

In addition to the five parameter astrometric solution for the sky (positions, parallaxes and proper motions), future Gaia data releases will provide the spectral energy distributions from 330-1050 nm, together with radial velocities, for sources brighter than visible magnitude 16. Within this context, the relevance of Gaia data for the study of PN is be briefly presented.
