Outsourcing Drone Image Stitching Helped UK Based Video Production Company in Creating Virtual Tour of Golf Course

Drone Image Editing Assistance at BackOffice Pro

BackOffice Pro (BOP) is one of the imminent outsourcing companies in India, providing drone image editing and virtual tour services to global clients. This case study describes how an aerial videography company used outsourcing to produce a golf course virtual tour based upon drone panoramas. The client selected Back Office Pro (BOP) to help stitch drone photos together. The client's goal was images stitched to perfection — BOP delivered the final virtual tour with 100 percent client satisfaction.


Meet the Client — Video Production Company in the United Kingdom

The client is based in the United Kingdom and specializes in full video productions, aerial photography, 360-degree virtual tours, and postproduction. Operating for more than two decades, the client is among a small number of UK companies allowed to use a combination of cable cam fly lines, telescopic masts, camera-stabilizing gimbals, drones (aka unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVs), and high-end remote-controlled cars.

Objective Behind the Drone Image Stitching Requirement

The objective was to create a virtual golf course, including the hot spots highlighting the ground level locations.

Client’s Challenges with Creating Virtual from Drone Images

The client's primary business requirement was to produce a virtual tour of a golf course located in Battle, a town about 55 miles from London. The client also wanted to include hot spots during the virtual tour process that could highlight ground level locations such as the golf course lodge, putting and driving surfaces, bar, restaurant, and retail shop. This assignment involved image stitching of drone panoramas — a highly specialized process that only a few professional photo editing companies such as BackOffice Pro can provide.

Custom Solution on Drone Image Stitching at BOP

Knowing that even slight deviations could make the virtual tour seem unprofessional, Back Office Pro assembled an expert team to meet all client requirements. The BOP team chose a combination of Autopano Giga and PTGui software. Because of a high level of advanced photo editing training and image stitching experience, the virtual tour was created for the client in 2.5 hours by one BOP photo editor.

While image stitching is always a complicated task, the use of drone panoramas added a new dimension to this project — and the client insisted on accuracy and perfection so that the final virtual tour would have a professional and impressive appearance for prospective customers. Another challenge involved the client's request to accommodate viewers moving vertically and horizontally through the virtual tour content. This required a 3D wide-field tour that permitted user navigation during the virtual time. However, we met the challenges efficiently with our expert team.
