About MapTech...

MapTech is a firm of consulting engineers and scientists, whose mission is to promote sustainable societies both nationally and internationally.  MapTech has its roots in the assessment of water resources, including the identification and control of nonpoint source (NPS) pollution problems, through the development and application of Geographic Information System (GIS) solutions, extensive monitoring networks, and innovative modeling approaches.  Incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia, MapTech, a HUBZone small business, is wholly owned by Phillip McClellan, who serves as its president and chief executive officer.  Dr. James Kern serves as chief operations officer.

Incorporated in 1994, the firm has roots that extend back to 1966 when Vernon Shanholtz, MapTech's founder, began developing what would become internationally recognized application research programs in water resources and GIS in 23 watersheds throughout Virginia and West Virginia.  Prior to joining MapTech in 1999, Phillip McClellan served as project engineer for a nationally recognized stream flow and groundwater monitoring program for 27 watersheds throughout Virginia.  Through his focus on watershed assessment and applied technologies, McClellan has added additional strengths and diversity to the services that MapTech provides.

MapTech offers services in environmental modeling and monitoring, software development, GIS applications, environmental data interpretation, specialized laboratory analyses (including Bacterial Source Tracking – BST), as well as research and development efforts aimed at improving methodologies and remediating problems.  Additionally, MapTech offers training and technical support in all of these areas.

The experience and expertise that MapTech offers can significantly enhance a client's ability to prepare and implement special hydrologic/water quality studies; develop and/or adapt hydrologic/water quality models to provide important insight to complex, interacting issues within a watershed or basin; conduct comprehensive monitoring programs; and integrate the very powerful capabilities of GIS and related technologies into day-to-day work environments.
