Cadasta Foundation is dedicated to the support, continued development and growth of the Cadasta Platform – an innovative, open source suite of tools for the collection and management of ownership, occupancy, and spatial data that meets the unique challenges of this process in much of the world.

We provide the tools and resources for testing new approaches to capturing land and resource rights data and promoting the adoption of ‘fit-for-purpose’ technology and processes. Incorporated as a non-profit, federally-recognized 501(c)(3) organization, Cadasta Foundation aims to simplify, modernize, and expedite the documentation of land and resource rights in places where it does not exist today.
