Enabling the efficient storage, access and retrieval of large volumes of multidimensional data is one of the important emerging problems in databases. We present a framework for adaptively storing, accessing, and retrieving large images. The framework uses a space and frequency graph to generate and select image view elements for storing in the database. By adapting to user access patterns, the system selects and stores those view elements that yield the lowest average cost for accessing the multiresolution subregion image views. The system uses a second adaptation strategy to divide computation between server and client in progressive retrieval of image views using view elements. We show that the system speeds-up retrieval for access and retrieval modes, such as drill-down browsing and remote zooming and panning, and minimizes the amount of data transfer over the network.
