About:

Penton Geospatial Technologies is owned and operated by Mark D. Penton.  I worked for the US Army Corps of Engineers for 34 years as a registered professional mechanical engineer in the Corps Mobile District office.  Starting in 1999 and until I retired from the Corps in 2012, I spent the last 12 years with the Corps providing technical mentoring and leadership in helping to establish and foster a strong viable geospatial program in the Mobile District.  A large part of those 12 years was directly involved in the Corps eCoastal program which was established in the Mobile District in the early 2000’s as a response to the establishment of regional sediment management (RSM) which was a change in the way the Corps of Engineers solved sediment-related problems.  Beginning in 1979 (literally 3 days after graduating from college) and up to 1999 my work consisted of all facets of mechanical design and engineering such as HVAC design, fire protection, plumbing, and other adhoc mechanical specialties in support of the military construction program. Other duties included CADD management and CADD standarization, and standard operating procedues in support of 150+ architects and engineers.

Penton Geospatial Technologies is an experienced, reliable, very low cost option for ArcGIS development, data integration, and other data analysis activities.  Engineering services include quick and reliable HVAC load analysis, HVAC equipment retrofit analysis, or other building energy response modeling from factors such as such as geometry, construction materials, HVAC system characteristics, and internal gains and output related metrics such as occupant thermal comfort, energy use and carbon emissions all acomplished on the EnergyPlus software platform.  Penton Geospatial is located in Mobile, AL.

When not administering this site or writing some GIS code I'm usually dreaming of my next hiking or kayaking trip, flying my drone, or because I live in Mobile, AL cutting my grass once a week.
