    Combining backgrounds in the space industry and law, the founders started with an idea to bring the history and evolution of a property to life by reaching into the archives of satellite imagery operators. Steadily, this idea has evolved into a unique solution for the real estate industry, combining property data, imagery and user-driven analysis to pinpoint legal risks in property transactions.
