Query Languages in Multimedia Database Systems

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Technical report TR95-25. Declarative query languages are an important feature of database management systems and have played an important role in their success. As database management technology enters the multimedia information system area, the availability of special-purpose query languages for multimedia applications will be equally important. In this report, we survey multimedia query languages and query models. Particularly, we look at those systems from the point of view of well-defined queries, fuzzy queries, visual queries, and query presentations. Several research issues, such as generic multimedia query languages, incremental queries, fuzzy queries, spatio-temporal queries, feature storage and organization, are also identified. In our opinion these are vital issues for the success and development of a multimedia query language. | TRID-ID TR95-25
