| Multi-dimensional Indexing
Presented by: Rui Li
ABSTRACT: Recent years have seen explosive growth in use
of new database applications such as CAD systems, spatial
information systems, and multimedia information systems. The
needs of these applications are far more complex than traditional
business applications. An important research issue in the
field of these databases is the content-based retrieval of
similar objects such as images, spatial objects, text, and
videos. However, in contrast to searching data in a relational
database, a content-based retrieval requires the search of
similar objects as a basic functionality of the database system.
So multi-dimensional indexing was found to facilitate the
similarity measures. In my presentation, Ill talk about the
definition of multi-dimensional indexing and some important
indexing and query algorithms.
