Paper Abstract

This paper will argue in favor of a comprehensive model of image data bases, which allows the inclusion of computer vision technique into a formal query framework on a rigorous data base foundation. It attempts to give a first, very tentative direction that this framework could take. The main idea of the paper is that a correct way to create a data base that relies on such heterogeneous techniques as those developed by computer vision researchers without collapsing under the sheer weight of its own complexity goes through the definition of abstract data types, and of suitable techniques to manipulate them in a query system without having to know anything of their implementation, that is, purely from a functional point of view.
