The exquisite astrometric data to be delivered by GAIA can only be successfully exploited if complemented by accurate astrophysical information on all observed objects. In this contribution I will discuss the preparations that are necessary for obtaining this information. The emphasis will be on the task of optimising the GAIA photometric system and the development of photometric data analysis algorithms.
