Native Queries in Sensoring Image Databases

ODBMS.ORG, a vendor-independent non-profit group of high-profile software experts lead by Prof. Roberto Zicari, today announced the publication of a new whitepaper on “Hierarchical Land Cover Information Retrieval in Object-Oriented Remote Sensing Image Databases with Native Queries” by ODBMS.ORG expert Jiang Li, Associate Professor with the Department of Computer Science and Information Technology at Austin Peay State University.

This paper, which is available for immediate and free download (PDF), presents the practical use of Native Queries, which have first been published in August 2005 in the whitepaper “Native Queries for Persistent Objects” in an exclusive contribution of William Cook and Carl Rosenberger to ODBMS.ORG’s portal. Jiang Li’s paper is another indication for the adoption of Native Queries, after last month the OMG’s Object Database Technology Working Group has published adiscussion whitepaper which grants native language APIs a prominent role in the upcoming 4th generation object database standard.

Earlier this year, Jiang Li has already published a paper dubbed “Integrated Information Mining and Image Retrieval in Remote Sensoring” which describes the application of ODBMS to deal efficiently with very complex data.

3 New Experts Join ODBMS.ORG

In the meantime, three new experts have joined ODBMS.ORG’s panel of experts:

Grossniklaus has started to publish an entire new lecture series on object databases from his teachings at ETH Zurich in ODBMS.ORG’sfree download section. It is complemented by a new article of expertJim Paterson of Glasgow Caledonian University on Using an Object-Oriented Database in a Web Site.
