As the importance and utilization of multimedia data increases, it becomes necessary to represent and manage multimedia data within database systems. In this paper, we designed and implemented an image retrieval system which support efficient management and intelligent retrieval of image data using concept hierarchy and data mining techniques. We stored the image information intelligently in databases using concept hierarchy. To support intelligent retrievals and efficient web services, our system automatically extracts and stores the user information, the user's query information, and the feature data of images. The proposed system integrates user metadata and image metadata to support various retrieval methods on image data.
