Location HQ is an online Location Library that works with some of the biggest names in TV and Film Productions. Their credits showcase large Hollywood productions including Wonder Women, Batman and Spectre, along with British showstoppers like The Night Manager and Downtown Abbey.
The success of the site is based on allowing location scouts to quickly find locations that meet their criteria. Therefore they needed a site that enabled extremely detailed searches that are mandatory when producers are looking for a location for a specific scene.
Our answer was to build a complex, intelligent tagging and indexing system that allowed every image and location to be found based on a multitude of keywords.
It was really important for the site to host over 100,000 images at very high resolution. This required us to develop service-side logic to optimize and deliver images at different sizes to users, at a swift speed using a fast image server.
