About Map Decisions


Map Decisions’ office is located in the beautiful Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania, which has become a hub for innovation supported by organizations including Ben Franklin Technology Partners and Lehigh University.

We Understand the Challenges

Map Decisions was founded in 2012 by Christian Birch, an engineering consultant with over 15 years of experience working alongside private and government organizations. He saw that many medium-sized, local governments needed an easier and more affordable way to manage assets.

GIS and Asset Management Software Now More Accessible

Before Map Decisions, asset management options were a burden on smaller public works department. Now small to medium-sized governments have the computing power, mapping capabilities and workflow simplification needed to make smarter decisions–without the IT overhead and expense.

Leadership and Partners

Christian Birch, CEO and founder, has provided geospatial and decision support services to numerous local governments throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. His professional services included database management, data collection, data conversion, image processing, and integrated web mapping services. Mr. Birch holds an M.S. in Engineering Management from Drexel University.

In mid-2012 Map Decisions was accepted into Ben Franklin TechVentures® a nationally acclaimed high-tech workspace and community for early-stage companies. By summer of 2014 Ben Franklin Technology Partners invested $100,000 to help scale our solution to more customers.
