Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf

05 Feb 2007

Teeing off in 2006 and quickly becoming established as a favourite event for players and spectators alike, the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship is now one of the biggest events on the PGA European Tour, regularly attracting some of golf’s most famous names. The 2007 Championship saw Englishman Paul Casey win the Falcon Cup, and ARL's Virtual Eye Golf team were there providing course flyovers, hole and bunker information graphics showing any view point, tee box statistics such as rise/fall to green, slopes, distance markers, zones and current pin position.

A last minute decision by the tournament sponsors meant that Christmas holidays for Virtual Eye were put on hold; This had a flow on effect to New Zealand Aerial Mapping who, together with our sister company Terralink International, commissioned high resolution aerial photography and aerial laser survey data to be collected for Abu Dhabi Golf Club on short notice. Abu Dhabi Golf Club had been significantly upgraded in preparation for the event. Improvements included a new gatehouse, enhanced signage, a revamped approach road and extensive landscaping with some 120 palm trees and 16,000 square metres of planting - the features were incorporated into our virtual Abu Dhabi course in time for January 18.

2006 Ryder Cup

23 Sep 2006

Ireland hosting this years Ryder Cup was too big a party to miss. ARL's Virtual Eye golf team was there at the K Club, Dublin, alongside the likes of Michael Jordan and former presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush Sr. Virtual Eye worked with BSkyB and European Tour Productions to provide analysis of the course and play using a highly accurate model of the course, live ball position data, tee and pin locations, green contours and more.

The Ryder Cup is one of golf's most prestigious events, and so was the ideal event to launch our new graphical look. Making the most of modern graphics hardware, we have added physically based water (reflection and refraction), soft shadowing and highly detailed grass to our graphics - and of course, being Ireland, we had to make it rain too.
