Abstract

The extended version of SQL+D presented here takes multimedia to its ultimate realm: the third dimension, allowing the user to explore the data in a virtual reality environment and display VRML files as data objects. Unlike the limited number of efforts in this area, SQL+D goes beyond constructing 3D bar charts. It allows truly interactive environments dynamically specified by the user in a query and constructed from data extracted from the database. Multimedia presentations are usually specified for a fixed set of elements. When dealing with database queries, the specific elements are unknown until the answer set is obtained. We present here the syntax of an improved version of SQL+D that allows a user to specify complex generic temporal presentations within the query itself. We have implemented most of our proposed extension.
