3Neuhold et al. Search and Retrieval in Object-Oriented Information Systems
In this paper, we outline the features of a knowledge-based retrieval interface MERIT (Multime-
dia Extensions of Retrieval Interaction Tools), and VODAK, an object-oriented DBMS suitable
for multimedia data. MERIT offers access to a subset of the CORDIS databases with data about
European research programs, projects, and consortia in the field of information technology. The
system features graphical presentations of retrieval results, employs interactive maps for geo-
graphical data, and provides scanned-in documents, e.g. photos of contact persons. The database
management system functionality of VODAK is extended such that it treats multimedia data, like
text, audio, or video, as an integral part of the databases. Furthermore VODAK is an extendible
database management system which allows to integrate information from heterogeneous and
distributed resources.
