The constant and fast-paced changes that are taking place in computer technology have brought forth a vast array of new applications. It is now possible to store not only standard alphanumerical data but also graphical, voice, and sound as well. This has opened up enormous possibilities for expanding the use of these data forms. This thesis is directed at exploring those possibilities and several current research projects that are attempting to model a multimedia database system. These models will be explored in terms of both their strong points and their weak points. Two possible applications will then be looked at in terms of how they could be modeled using each of these three models.
