Gaea+ is being used by the Association of Municipalities and Towns of Slovenia for public display of urban plans, by the members of the Alpine Association of Slovenia to plan hiking trips, by the Slovene Administration for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief to visualize disasters and plan rescue actions, among others.
