An Image Management Kernel for the Design of Relational and Pictorial Data Bases

  • Ph. Chassignet
Conference paper


Picture allows to make use of the analytical wealth of the eye In the understanding of complex informations. Thus, one largest and largest part of the data, which are today generated or processed by computer, is expressed as digital images. So, it is of a great interest to be able to handle these in a similar way to other data whether those are elementary as numbers or more complex as sets of facts and rules.
