Abstract

Querying of visual databases has relied predominantly on text based systems. Words do not provide an appropriate or adequate means of describing visual artifacts. A system (DIVIUS) has been developed which allows users to describe and query objects in a pictorial database, using a visual language derived from the database objects. Users can also indicate their level of uncertainty regarding certain attributes of the query.
