Abstract

The availability of more and more on-line mass storage has made feasable the realisation of new applications in the field of the management of image archives by means of Information Retrieval (IR) techniques. These applications can be realised by using documents that contain both formatted and unformatted information that describes the image itself. In addition, the documents contain suitable pointers that allows to have the images back from an external memory. It doesn’t matter the recording support: microfilm, magnetic or optical disks, and so on. Formatted information and descriptions are processed with IR techniques in order to retrieve the documents and obtain a reproduction of the desired images.
