Industrial Applications of Semantic Web  
In present day, there are a number of image data in the web because of the development of the image acquisition devices. So, many researchers have been studying about the image retrieval and management. Keyword matching, contents-based and concept-based methods are the basic studies for the image retrieval. In this paper, we suggest the new image retrieval methodology using the cognitive spatial relationships between the objects in the image. There were the similar studies already using the

We think to need the new methodology for representing the spatial relationships. It is the cognitive spatial relationships. In our study, we newly define the cognitive spatial relationships and apply it to the image retrieval system. At the result, we realized that our methodology makes possible the semantic image retrieval.
