This integration aims to overcome the limitations of conventional video surveillance systems, such as low efficiency in video searching, redundancy in video data transmission, and insufficient capability to position video content in geographic space. Furthermore, a model for integrating GIS and moving objects is established. The model includes a moving object extraction method and a fusion pattern for GIS and moving objects. From the established integration model, a prototype of GIS and moving objects (GIS–MOV) system is constructed and used to analyze the possible applications of the integration of GIS and moving objects.
