The VISIONS Schema System provides a framework for building a general interpretation system as a distributed network of many small special-purpose interpretation systems. Each schema is an 'expert' at recognizing one type of object. A discussion is presented of the problems of knowledge representation in a distributed AI environments and the Schema System's approach to those problems. A series of interpretation experiments have been performed on nine images from two natural scene domains; results from three images are presented.
