For instance, suppose the user is a parking manager.
First, he needs to divide the parking lot by the sectors that constitute the entire park.
This is done by creating subdirectories, one for each sector, with the name chosen for the sector (this is important because that name will appear when the user queries the database when searching for vehicles).
Suppose the car park name is “Paris, champs elysees“. The manager would then create subdirectories of the VIDEOS directory, named like this :
The greater the number of sectors, the more precise the queries will be. But this will results into a bigger job for the operator, who must shoot videos of each sector, on a regular basis.
It is advisable to shoot video of each part of the parking on a regular basis (ore or two times a day, more details here).
This done, the user must be sure to insert new incoming videos files, in the right directory.

This done, the manager can query the database to retrieve different kind of results :
