A currently important research field in information sciences is the management of nontraditional distributed multimedia databases. Two related key issues are to achieve an efficient content-based query by example retrieval and a fast response time. This paper presents the architecture of a distributed image retrieval system which provides novel solutions to these key issues. In particular, a method to quantify the effectiveness of low level visual descriptors in database query tasks is presented. The results are also used to improve the system response time, which is an important issue when querying very large databases. A new mechanism to adapt system query strategies to user behavior is also introduced in order to improve the effectiveness of relevance feedback and overall system response time. Finally, the issue of browsing multiple distributed databases is considered and a solution is proposed using multidimensional scaling techniques
