In this paper we describe the general architecture and specific topics of a database system for multimedia (specifically, images) data. We analyze the conditions that must be met in order to achieve goals such as efficient schema design, query optimization, and extensibility. We assume that the engine uses the services of a traditional database (in the specific instance, a relational database), with the addition of user-defined indexing schemes. The paper presents general architectural issue and focuses on two problems: schema normalization using computational properties of the features, and the definition of feature algebras, in particular, the definition of a wavelets algebra for query expression.
