This paper presents an extendedmodel for image representation and retrieval (EMIR 2 ). Thismodel combines different interpretations of an image to build a complete description of it, each interpretation being represented by a particular view. The set of views considered in EMIR 2 include the physical view and the logical view, which is an aggregation of four main views: the structural view, the spatial view, the perceptive view, and the symbolic view. A description of the model concepts is given using a mathematical notation, yieldingthe framework EMIR 2 . We defined a first correspondence function that estimates the similarity between two images, one being the query.
