    Demand for efficient ways to represent vast amount of video data has grown rapidly in recent years. The advances in positioning services have led to new possibilities of combining location information to video content. In this paper we present an automatic video editing system for geotagged mobile videos. In our solution the system creates automatically a video summary from a set of unedited video clips. Geotags are used to group video clips with the same context properties. The groups are used to create a video summary where the videos from the same group are represented as scenes. The novelty in our solution lies in the combining of geotags with low level content analysis tools in video abstraction. Evaluations of the system prove the concept useful as it improves coherence and enjoyability of the automatic video summaries
