The paper describes a new pictorial database oriented to image analysis, implemented inside the MIDAS data analysis system. Pictorial databases need expressive data structures in order to represent a wide class of information from the numerical to the visual. The model of the database is relational; however, a full normalization is not achievable, owing to the complexity of the visual information. The paper reports the general design and notes on the software implementation. Preliminary experiments show the performance of the pictorial database. Copyright © 1993 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd
