The video streams available in a surveillance system distributed on the wide area may be accompanied by metadata are obtained as a result of video processing. Many algorithms applied to surveillance systems, e.g. event detection or object tracking, are strictly connected with localization of the object and reconstruction of its route. Drawing related information on a plan of a building or on a map of the city can facilitate the perception of events. Methods of augmenting cartographic data are proposed in this chapter. Making it possible to merge and to present a large amount of useful data on a single screen of surveillance.
