Abstract

The incorporation of multimedia data types is increasingly becoming a requirement in geographic information systems. Pictures, sounds, animated sequences and unstructured text are examples of such data which may be associated with entities in geographic information systems. This paper considers how such data may be treated in a generic, application independent manner. An example of an ecological application with extensive multimedia requirements is used to illustrate various approaches. The paper also discusses query and visualization aspects of multimedia data.
