Title: The Semantics Of The Geographical Database Query Languages
Subject: M. Mainguenaud The Semantics Of The Geographical Database Query Languages
Description: : In this paper, we analyze the various philosophies to define a query language for geographical database.

To guarantee a coherent result of a query, we present the requirements of these three philosophies. Key words: Geographical Information System, Spatial Database, Query Language, Extended SQL I.
