Essential Software in a GIS Lab

Here is my list of essential software for an academic GIS Lab.

If anyone would suggest other applications/scripts or an entirely new category, please either leave a comment or email me at been AT uta DOT edu. Please note that there are only PCs available. Obviously, this very closely resembles the relevant applications on my PC.

I am preparing this list because I share our student's frustration at not having access to all of these resources in one lab. Students often have to run between different labs to access the software they need. The following list is NOT currently the configuration of any of the GIS Labs on campus.

There's plenty of other/alternative software you could have listed. For one example, I would have traded Photoshop for Gimp and Inkscape. Why not add OpenOffice to the bunch? There's also a list of GIS-related project there: with many you haven't mentioned. Cheers :-)

Another essential is a script to automate geocoding using Yahoo's new API. Being able to convert street addresses to lat/long values is one of the most common GIS tasks and Yahoo's offering of a free geo-coder service is a godsend for those of us who remember the bad old days....
