I am doing borehole logging equipment used in Geotechnical Engineering. A panoramic camera with a fish-eye len is put into a underground borehole, and a vedio of the interior surface along the depth of the borehole is recorded. Then my work is to transform the recorded vedio into a 2D digital image, which has a rectangular shape corresponding to the circular surface of the borehole. In this application, the stitching technology of two adjacent frames in the recorded vedio is important.

Is there anyone who has this similar experience and willing to help me? or anyplace I can find an open code? or any commercial package of software I can buy?

You can quite easily stitch together consecutive frames, actually you could even down-sample your frame rate if the camera isn't moving too fast (two consecutive frames will represent almost the same image). This is gonna do your job unless the camera is moving inside the borehole AND rotating at the same time: in this case you'll end up with a "stepped" final image and not a clear rectangle.
