    A Review on Iconic Indexing for Large Visual Databases,
    The amount of information stored in form of images, pictures or videos is undergoing a tremendous growth in these years. The developement of techniques for the automatic management of such a bulk of information is becoming a key iussue. This report presents a survey of recent techniques for automatic picture indexing and their application to image retrieval, image reconstruction and spatial reasoning about the objects in the images. Our emphasis is on the 2D string approach,
