GRASS is an open source geographic information system (GIS). And of course, both are completely free and completely useful.

  • Thanks Nathan! I appreciate the addition. There is also a section on LaTeX now and I will be adding Python over Winter Break.

    Due to classes, I’ve fallen behind on making sure all of the links are still functioning, but a couple of scripts will take care of that. It is still an infant, but I am hoping to incorporate it in a potentially larger project that will have a better URL :-)
