Requirements for data bases and data base interactions from users of surface and coastal water remote sensed data are presented.

The water surface system structure is presented, pointing out some of its multifaced interactions with the territory. The problem of surface water system observation, modelling and representation, which are carried out with different aims (description, design and management) is presented. The role, importance and the use of data base in reaching the different goals are shown.

Two main problems are pointed out: the construction of an interface between the users specialistics languages and the informatics tools and the problems of matching pictorial and traditional data.

Outlines of a user definable image description system and of a methodology for the construction of a user oriented query language are given. From these observations data bases requirements follows.
