Based on our experience in developing visual information retrieval system (VIRS) in the Web-based environment, we present our views of the present and future of VIRS, particularly those providing access to large distributed on-line repositories. We will discuss the role of content-based visual query, present a taxonomy for classifying existing VIRS, present a working Internet VIRS as a case study, describe a preliminary prototype of Internet meta VIRS, and finally make some bold conjectures about the dominant challenging in developing scalable VIRS for the future Internet environment
