Welcome to my Home Page

This website was created and is maintained by me, Immo Blecher, to present my skills, knowledge and experience with Geographic Information Systems, database systems, software development, business management, geohydrological and chemical laboratory consulting.

You will also be able to obtain information on the Aquabase Water Resources Management software (Aquabase Twenty20), which is at an advanced stage of development after many years of neglect and zero-development. Aquabase has been, and is still used by many consultants and government organisations in the water management sectors, not only in South Africa, but also in many parts of Africa. The software package is available for free (the freedom to use), but that obviously comes without any support with installation or database setup. Please visit the Aquabase link under Projects on this website for more information. Otherwise just go to https://aquabase.blecher.co.za/wp and download the latest version from there!
