Who We Are

VeriDaaS is an innovative Colorado-based company founded on the belief that there’s a better way to collect, distribute, and extract value out of geospatial data.

With that as our foundation, we are collecting additional datasets including hyperspectral and 3D images. These datasets are being seamlessly layered together to facilitate new usages and applications while our proprietary Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) platform is a game-changer delivering data and software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications to our clients.
