The Internet and technologies such as high-capacity storage devices, broadband telecommunications systems, and multimedia development software systems have accelerated the development of new applications based on the use of multimedia database systems. A multimedia database is a repository of different data objects (text, numeric values, Boolean values, dates, graphical images, video clips, and sound files). Examples of applications based on multimedia databases include news and stock market information on demand; movies on demand; home shopping; medical systems; trademark, patent, and copyright databases; geographic information systems (GIS); weather forecasting; Computer Aided Design (CAD) systems; architectural design; fabric and fashion design; interior design; photographic libraries; art gallery and museum management; law enforcement; criminal investigations; military reconnaissance and surveillance; scientific experiments; and educational systems
