The BioImage database is a new scientific database for multidimensional microscopic images of biological specimens, which is available through the World Wide Web (WWW). The development of this database has followed an iterative approach, in which requirements and functionality have been revised and extended. The complexity and innovative use of the data meant that technical and biological expertise has been crucial in the initial design of the data model. A controlled vocabulary was introduced to ensure data consistency. Pointers are used to reference information stored in other databases. The data model was built using InfoModeler as a database design tool. The database management system is the Informix Dynamic Server with Universal Data Option. This object-relational system allows the handling of complex data using features such as collection types, inheritance, and user-defined data types. Informix datablades are used to provide additional functionality: the Web Integration Option enables WWW access to the database; the Video Foundation Blade provides functionality for video handling.
