Several research groups have addressed the problem of retrieving vector
graphics. This work has, however, focused either on domain-dependent
areas or was based on very simple graphics languages. Here we
take a fresh look at the issue of graphics retrieval in general and
in particular at the tasks which retrieval systems must support. The
paper presents a series of case studies which explored the needs of
professionals in the hope that these needs can help direct future
graphics IR research. Suggested modelling techniques for some of the
graphic collections are also presented.
