A survey of results is presented on relationships between the algebraic systems derived from the approximation spaces induced by information systems and various classes of algebras of relations. Rough relation algebras are presented and it is shown that they form a discriminator variety. A characterisation of the class of representable rough relation algebras is given. The family of closure operators derived from an approximation space is abstractly characterised as certain type of Boolean
