Spatial Similarity Queries with Logical Operators [chapter]

Konstantinos A. Nedas, Max J. Egenhofer
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The second set of methods contributes to a consistent and comprehensive methodology for spatial similarity retrieval in response to complex queries with combinations of logical operators.  ...  This paper develops methods for the retrieval of similar spatial information, in particular when several similarity constraints with logical combinations must be compared and integrated.  ...  Similar results to a query involving relational operators Similarity in Spatial Queries Expressed with Logical Operators Querying a system with logical operators is based on concepts from Boolean algebra  ...

Content-based Image Retrieval by Spatial Similarity

Archana M. Kulkarn, R. C. Joshi
2002 Defence Science Journal  
Similarity-based retrieval of images is an important task in image databases. Most of the user's queries are on retrieving those database images that are spatially similar to a query image.  ...  A content-based image retrieval system that erticiently and effectively retrieves information from a defence image database along with the architecture for retrieving images by spatial similarity is presented  ...  For spatial by nearly half, the insertion and deletion operations similarity queries, various logical representations are simpler, giving better performance in searching. exist, such as 2-D string7, spatial  ...

2004 Geoinformatica  
Geometaphors are then spatially arranged, and this speci®es the spatial operator between them.  ...  Filters are used to represent operations on the database and pictorial icons are used throughout the language for ®lters, operators and spatial relations.  ...  Non-spatial operators: With regards to spatial querying, some of the traditional database operators are not speci®ed in the languages [6] .  ...

Two Data Organizations for Storing Symbolic Images in a Relational Database System [chapter]

Aya Soffer, Hanan Samet
1999 Database Semantics  
The emphasis is on extracting both contextual and spatial information from the raw images. A logical image representation that preserves this information is defined.  ...  Sample queries and execution plans to respond to these queries are described for both organizations. Analytical cost analyses of these execution plans are given.  ...  Query processing and optimization is performed following the same guidelines of relational databases extended with a suitable cost model for accessing spatial indices and performing spatial operations.  ...

Towards a logical multidimensional model for spatial data warehousing and OLAP

Marcus Costa Sampaio, André Gomes de Sousa, Cláudio de Souza Baptista
2006 Proceedings of the 9th ACM international workshop on Data warehousing and OLAP - DOLAP '06  
This paper proposes a novel logical multidimensional model suitable for SDW, which is implemented on the top of an object-relational database system with support for spatial data.  ...  , by using dynamic maps with zooming, panning, aggregation and other spatial functionalities.  ...  For instance, let us consider an OLAP query, similar to the one in section 3.3 with the exception that there is no spatial window: Tests with and without R-tree index gave the following results: ( Non-indexed  ...

Querying Vague Spatial Objects in Databases with VASA [chapter]

Markus Schneider, Alejandro Pauly
2008 Quality Aspects in Spatial Data Mining  
VASA is defined on the basis of exact models for crisp spatial objects and includes the definitions of vague spatial data types as well as the operations and predicates needed to effectively manipulate  ...  In the context of spatial databases, retrieval and handling of vague spatial objects through querying is critical in exploiting the functionality of the database.  ...  In [18] the operator ~ is used in a similar way to the similar-to operator.  ...

Integrating symbolic images into a multimedia database system using classification and abstraction approaches

Aya Soffer, Hanan Samet
1998 The VLDB journal  
Schema de nitions and indices that support query speci cations involving spatial as well as contextual constraints are presented.  ...  On the other hand, in the abstraction approach retrieval is on the basis of similarity of feature vector values of these objects.  ...  Query Q2 is then computed by a spatial join operation between the two spatial indices with no need for creating temporary indices as is done in Plan P2C.  ...

FlexiDex: Flexible Indexing for Similarity Search with Logic-Based Query Models [chapter]

Marcel Zierenberg, Maria Bertram
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The flexibility of an indexing approach plays an important role for its applicability, especially for logic-based similarity search.  ...  A flexible approach allows the use of the same precomputed index structure even if query elements like weights, operators, monotonicity or used features of the aggregation function change in the search  ...  Logic-based similarity search depends on the formulation of queries with the help of Boolean operators.  ...

Pictorial queries by image similarity

A. Soffer, H. Samet
1996 Proceedings of 13th International Conference on Pattern Recognition  
Two image similarity factors are considered: (1) contextual similarity: how well does the content of one image match that of another. (2) spatial similarity: the relative locations of the matching symbols  ...  The query image is constructed by positioning objects so that the desired locational and spatial constraints hold.  ...  No spatial constraints are specified in these queries. More complex queries may be specified by combining query images with "AND" and "OR" operators.  ...

Manipulating spatial data in constraint databases [chapter]

Alberto Belussi, Elisa Bertino, Barbara Catania
1997 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The relational algebra can be easily extended to deal with generalized relations. However, such algebra has some limitations when it is used for modeling spatial data.  ...  First of all, there is no explicit way to deal with the set of points representing a spatial object as a whole. Rather, only point-based computations can be performed using this algebra.  ...  A similar consideration holds if Q(t) contains the renaming operator.  ...
