An information management system (IMS) is
an advanced information retrieval and digital libraries
system that stores, manages, and delivers descriptive
information (metadata) for data sets, databases, documents,
models, multimedia, projects, and spatial information.
In general, IMS architecture supports the management of
remote sensing data, geographical information system
(GIS) coverages, and other types of data for which entry
into relational tables is not appropriate. It sometimes
works together with modelling applications as well. IMS
stores and maintains descriptive information in a relational
database and refers to the products (data, documents, etc.)
stored either within IMS or as distributed external files.
