Abstract

Abstract The need for efficient mechanisms of retrieval and access to multimedia data stored in different databases has gained more attention in recent years. This is due to the fact that our daily life is inundated with multimedia information covering areas as varied as education, business, health, government, games, etc. Multimedia presentation and storage models deal with the distribution of multimedia data in different databases. This paper defines a user friendly micro-language, baptized MILAMU, that facilitates both access to these multimedia databases and formulation of multimedia queries. As a result, the composition of a multimedia document can be carried out without facing the problems and complexities inherent to low level programming.
