GRASS (the Geographic Resources Analysis Support System) is a software raster- and vector-based GIS (Geographic Information System), image processing system, graphics production system, and spatial modeling system. It contains many modules for raster data manipulation, vector data manipulation, rendering images on the monitor or paper, multispectral image geocoding and processing, point data management and general data management. It also has tools for interfacing with digitizers, scanners, and the PostgreSQL, DBF, and ODBC connected databases. GRASS operates on all common operating systems.
GeoServer is a software server that allows users to share and edit geospatial data. Designed for interoperability, it publishes data from any major spatial data source using open standards. GeoServer is the reference implementation of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Web Feature Service (WFS) and Web Coverage Service (WCS) standards, as well as a high performance certified compliant Web Map Service (WMS). GeoServer forms a core component of the Geospatial Web.
Siag Office is a free office package which consists of the spreadsheet Siag, the word processor PW, the animation program Egon, the text editor XedPlus, the file manager Xfiler and the previewer Gvu. Siag is easy to use, yet infinitely flexible through multiple embedded interpreters and a plugin mechanism that allows other programs to run inside the main document. The supported interpreters are SIOD, Guile, Tcl, and Python.
imgSeek is a photo collection manager capable of searching through an image database, in which the query is expressed either as a rough sketch painted by the user or as another image you supply. You simply draw a rough sketch of what you want to find and imgSeek displays for you a thumbnail view of the best matches. You may also find duplicate images automatically, generate Web photo albums, edit image metadata including EXIF JPEG data, organize images into a keyword hierarchy, and more.
Alexandria is a GNOME application to help manage a book collection. It retrieves book information (including cover pictures) from several online libraries, allows you to search for a book (either by EAN/ISBN, title, authors, or keyword), can import and export data into ONIX, Tellico, and EAN/ISBN-list formats, generates Web pages from your libraries, allows marking your books as loaned, saves data using the YAML format, features an HIG-compliant user interface, shows books in different views that can be filtered or sorted, and handles book rating and notes.
The Chemistry Development Kit (CDK) is a library of Java classes for chemo-, bioinformatics, computational chemistry, and chemometrics. It provides important algorithms like substructure search, SMILES, Gasteiger charges, QSAR descriptor calculation, 3D structure generation, 2D layout and rendering, many IO formats, atom typing, and more.
photos is a Web-based photo database for storing metadata about digital photos so you can find them again later. It supports adding photos one at a time, or as a group by directory. It is intended to be run locally but can be run on a remote Web server if you've got the space and the bandwidth.
iOta (Image Organization Tool and Archiver) is a tool to manage, organize, index, archive, and Web-publish your digital photography collection. It is backed by a BerkeleyDB database. The KDE/QT based front-end is designed to be simple, yet powerful. iOta allows the user to generate, uniquely rename, and index images to an embedded database. The user can also caption and describe each image, generate thumbnails and browsable HTML indexes, archive directories of images onto CDR, and search and edit properties of each photograph in the user's collection. In addition, all this information also travels with the image itself in the thumbnail EXIF header.
