Successful analysis of video data requires an integration of techniques from KR, Computer Vision, and Machine Learning. Being able to detect and to track objects as well as extracting their changing spatial relations with other objects is one approach to describing and detecting events. Different kinds of spatial relations are important, including topology, direction, size, and distance between objects as well as changes of those relations over time. Typically these kinds of relations are treated separately, which makes it difficult to integrate all the extracted spatial information. We present a uniform and comprehensive spatial representation of moving objects that includes all the above spatial/temporal aspects, analyse different properties of this representation and demonstrate that it is suitable for video analysis.
