The stadium Banorte was completed in just 3 months. In the middle of 2003, the creation of the Dorados was announced, in those times of Culiacan, and with it the professional soccer came to Culiacan. The city had a team already, but a stadium was needed, a building capable of receiving the First A LEAGUE (the promotion league in Mexico) and to fulfill with the requirements of the Mexican Federation of soccer. They thought about the Universitario stadium, but its capacity was very small and it didn’t have sufficient space for an enlargement. And there weren’t many options. Aside of the Humaya River, in the STASE neighborhood, part of the Urban Project Tres Rios, there is a soccer field, which until 2003, it was a court with tradition inside the amateur soccer games, the “princes”, called by the veterans, or el “Carlos Gonzalez and Gonzalez”, named like this in memory of the brewery concessionaire, which gave great support to neighborhood soccer. There was the foundation of the dream of the Sinaloenses soccer players called Dorados. Those same ones that in record time of 3 months, some say it was less, they got up and gave shape to what is today the Banorte Stadium, with an investment of 55 million 238 thousand 236 pesos, and an initial capacity for 14.000 fans. It is granted for 15 years, with the endorsement of the state congress to the company Stadiums of Sinaloa, S.A de C.V.

After the promotion of the Dorados of Sinaloa to LIGA MX (first division in Mexico), the Banorte Stadium, had the need to increase their capacity to host matches of the first division.

After the promotion of the Dorados of Sinaloa to LIGA MX (first division in Mexico), the Banorte Stadium, had the need to increase their capacity to host matches of the first division. The stadium had an initial capacity of 16.000 fans comfortably seated and the target was to extend it for 25.000. By the year 2005 the remodeling work had a great advance; by 2006 the enlargement was almost finished, the only thing left to build was the stages of the river area, but when the Dorados of Sinaloa have relegated to the promotion league back again the construction of these stages were canceled.

How this virtual tour was made

The equipment used to make this virtual tour is the following:

  • DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter
  • Phantom 3 4K Camera
  • 3 - Axis Gimbal
  • Nikon D800 Camera
  • Sigma 8 mm fisheye lens
  • Nodal Ninja Ball Joint NN4
  • Manfrotto Tripod 190
  • Remote trigger

The processing software of this image was:

  • Lightroom to process RAW files
  • PTGui to perform the stitching of the image
  • Photoshop for general and local adjustments
  • PanoTour Pro for the virtual tour generation
In this occasion for the sewing “stitching” of the 28 photographs that I performed with the phantom professional drone 3, I used the software Autopano Pro. In Color Software (www.kolor.com) they have done a great job improving this fantastic program in the last years. Also it is available for Mac and PC and in two versions: Autopano and Autopano Giga. The application is well translated into Spanish and the team of development is opened to listen to the suggestions of the clients. It has some other advantages with regard to PTGui, apart from the language, centered especially on the automation of certain processes such as automatic detection of panorama within a folder or multiple selections of files or multiple file selection.
