The paper presents the main features of a prototype image retrieval system, nicknamed Imagine. In this system, the image database is located in a site remote from the user workstation. The key issues in developing the prototype have been the response time and scalability, or the ability of maintaining a set of basic functionalities in a wide range of workstation performances and network digital rates. The paper focuses on the problems related to the image visualization process in a workstation with a limited number of reproducible colors. Three different approaches, split, shared, and generic colormap, are presented and compared.
