Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe a new system for storing annotated images in a large database and querying by means of a dynamical retrieval of images through use of metadata. It is based on a three-tier architecture suitable for building a common gateway for accessing heterogeneous data. Based on XML schema of documents, the extraction of metadata is used for successive querying. We give an example on a database of astronomical and geographical images, but the method is quite general and can be applied to more general case of large heterogeneous databases.
