The Milky Way and beyond: Scientists publish new data on nearly 2 billion stars, an interesting URL referenced in the report here. When it comes to Gaia stellar parallax measurements, I find various reports indicate accuracy to perhaps 1 mas or close to 3300 ly distance. Some other reports suggest 10,000 ly distance limit, e.g.

Beside the U, V, W velocities of stars, the stellar parallax is critical to determine the distance measurement too.
