<p><it>Abstract</it>—In the present paper, we introduce a variation of the 2D string representation for symbolic pictures, the non-redundant 2D string, and analyze it with respect to compactness and non ambiguity. It results that the non-redundant 2D string is a more compact representation than the 2D string, and that the class of unambiguous pictures under the non-redundant 2D string is almost equal to the class of unambiguous pictures under the reduced 2D string [<ref rid="BIBK03472" type="bib">2</ref>], up to a special case. Moreover, we show that the compactness of the new index does not affect the time complexity of picture retrieval.</p>
