  author={Margaret Chock and Alfonso F. Cardenas and Allen Klinger},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence},
The database structure and data manipulation capabilities of a generalized PICture Database Management System (PICDMS) are presented. They are based on a dynamic, stacked-image, logical database structure that uses gridded, rather than topological, data representation. A prototype PICDMS has been designed and implemented. A commercial version is being used as a generator of image processing programs. The system has novel capabilities for nonprogrammer users: it is able to 1) build multiple… Expand
Image Database Management
The chapter discusses some examples of the existing image database management systems classifying them as first, second, and third generation database systems, and focuses on the similarity retrieval in image database systems. Expand

Signature file as a spatial filter for iconic image database
This paper proposes access methods, to different extents of precision, for retrieval of desired images encoded in 2-D B-strings, which provides an efficient way to retrieve images in image databases. Expand
Spatial query processing in an object-oriented database system
This work unifies much of the work on spatial query processing capabilities by identifying common principles and distilling them into a small set of constructs that can be supported with only minor modifications to current DBMS implementations. Expand
PROBE Spatial Data Modeling in an Image Database and Query Processing Application
S PROBE’S spatial data model and geometry filter are described, and it is shown how these facilities can be used to support image database applications. Expand
PROBE Spatial Data Modeling and Query Processing in an Image Database Application
An overview of PROBE is provided, focusing on the facilities for dealing with spatial and temporal data, and how thePROBE database system and simple application-specific object classes combine to efficiently support PROBe's spatial data model. Expand
Management of multidimensional discrete data
A set of requirements is developed, a small set of language constructs are proposed (based on a formal algebraic semantics), and a novel MDD architecture is outlined to provide the basis for efficient MDD query evaluation. Expand
Architecture for distributed multimedia database systems

An Intelligent Image Database System
A prototype intelligent image database system (IIDS) that is based on a novel pictorial data structure that supports spatial reasoning, flexible image information retrieval, visualization, and traditional image database operations is presented. Expand


A data base management system for image processing
The Picture Database Management System is a new, general solution to the data-processing processing problems of two-dimensional information: data definition, manipulation, and management, establishment of relationships among data from different sources, and handling of enormous data volume. Expand

This paper briefly summarizes the implementation of GEO-OUEL, a special purpose geographic information retrieval and display system. Basically, it is a rather small "front end" to a powerful generalExpand
Geographic Data Processing
This survey attempts to provide a umfied framework for the constituent elements-originating In numerous and diverse disciplines--of geographical data processing systems by analyzing the internal and external aspects of such systems. Expand
Pictorial Data-Base Systems
This book discusses a variety of pictorial data-base systems used in digital picture processing, including those used in computer-aided design, photojournalism, and image analysis. Expand
Manipulating Data Structures in Pictorial Information Systems
Spatial data handling systems generally use either topological or grid image data structures. It makes little sense for these systems to be incompatible.
Picture Query Languages for Pictorial Data-Base Systems
Integrated pictorial data-base systems need pictorial query languages to enhance their effectiveness. The tabular structures of QPE, IQ, and others are easy to understand and access.
