A computer implemented method, apparatus, and computer program product for identifying positional data for an object moving in an area of interest. Positional data for each camera in a set of cameras associated with the object is retrieved. The positional data identifies a location of each camera in the set of cameras within the area of interest. The object is within an image capture range of each camera in the set of cameras. Metadata describing video data captured by the set of cameras is analyzed using triangulation analytics and the positional data for the set of cameras to identify a location of the object. The metadata is generated in real time as the video data is captured by the set of cameras. The positional data for the object is identified based on locations of the object over a given time interval. The positional data describes motion of the object.
