In this paper we discuss the use of AVS5 as an interface tool to the public domain database management system POSTGRES. This work is part of ongoing research on data analysis tools for large (terabyte) data sets. Statistical analysis and browsing tools for the data sets are provided via the AVS5 and POSTGRES systems. Graphical interfaces are provided for both the feature extraction stage and the post processing stage of the system. The tools for these interfaces, rather than the statistical tools themselves, are the focus of this paper.
