A Computing System Organization for Image Data Retrieval

As observed in remotely sensed or medical image data processing, data bases for particular types of images are more and more regionally integrated. For the incorporation of these data bases in a distributed environment, the retrieval of this data to make images available for local processing is important. What is needed is an advanced facility for selecting related image data through an estimation of the relevancy of their essential features at a physical or conceptual level. This problem involves large-scale semantic data base handling and the facility for extracting image features for the embodiment of the data bases.
