<p>ISR (international symbolic representation), a representation and management system for use at the intermediate (symbolic) level of vision, is described. ISR mediates access to intermediate-level vision data and forms an active interface to the higher-level inference processes that construct an image's interpretation. The system supports important types of data and operations and can be adapted to the changing needs of ongoing research. It provides a centralized data representation that supports integration of results from multiple avenues of research into the overall vision system. ISR's underlying computational paradigm is explained, database requirements for image interpretation are identified, the ISR data management system is described, and the use of ISR is discussed.</p>
