During 2016, two Finnish friends, Joni Norppa and Lauri Häme founded the company Satellio Ltd and received funding from the Finnish government for a project to monitor forestry by utilising satellite images. Over the last few years, they became experts in handling satellite data very efficiently.

In the summer of 2018, Norppa and Häme launched Terramonitor (by Satellio), the world's first unified, up-to-date, global, enriched map service produced by artificial intelligence, with the idea of enabling space data access to all businesses. Terramonitor can be integrated into existing map services and contains over 100 million images (open and commercial), which are constantly updated and streamed.
