RAVE data has provided new results on Galactic kinematics like the kinematical decomposition of the Galactic disk. This decomposition permits to identify the different components of the disk and to characterize them in terms of scale height and scale length. With the data provided by Gaia and in particular the RVS, we will have a completly renewed view of the Galaxy. The precision of the RVS will permit to undertake a precise analysis of the kinematics of the Galactic disks. This knowledge will provide significant clues to constrain the scenarios of the Galactic disk formation.
