Cadasta’s land tenure and technology experts around the world help partners achieve their goals more efficiently and more effectively by providing them with powerful yet flexible digital tools to document, store, and analyze land and resource rights.
The digital tools we create, from mobile applications to the use of satellite or drone imagery, are flexible and can meet each partner’s unique needs. Our tools can gather and store a wide variety of data from GPS coordinates and land boundary data, to video interviews with tribal chiefs and documentary photographs.
We can support partners wherever they are in their data collection process. If a partner has already started collecting data using paper surveys or a different digital platform, we can work with them to quickly transfer the data to our platform.
We are available to travel to the field to train our partners on how to use our tools, and we are available for ongoing remote support.
Once information is collected and stored on the Cadasta platform, we can help partners make sense of the data.
The information collected and any analysis done with that data forever remains the property of our partners. Each partner alone determines the privacy setting for the information they have collected. Cadasta follows a stringent privacy protocol, certifies the security of the platform, and retains no rights to our partners’ data.
Because Cadasta uses open-source tools, where possible, most of the programs and platforms we use are flexible and can easily be altered to reflect our partners’ changing needs.
Thanks to generous funding from UK aid, Omidyar Network, and other funders, large and small, we can provide many of our services to partners free of charge. Cadasta Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.
