Abstract: The GAIA application is a popular choice for examining and analyzing astronomical images. As data volumes have increased and spectral and time data cubes have become more prevalent there has been a strong demand for cube visualization. This paper will briefly describe the major enhancements that have been made to GAIA to support data cubes including real-time spectral extraction (single spectrum or area), calculation of moments, creation of channel maps and movie displays. It will also say how the PLASTIC protocol has been used to inter-operate with Virtual Observatory (VO) enabled applications.
