Whitebox Geospatial Analysis Tools - An open-source GIS and remote sensing package

  •        53

Whitebox GAT is an open-source geographical information system (GIS) and remote sensing package. The Whitebox GAT project began in 2009 and was conceived as a replacement for the Terrain Analysis System (TAS). Whitebox GAT is intended to provide a platform for advanced geospatial data analysis with applications in both environmental research and the geomatics industry more broadly.

It was envisioned from the outset as providing an ideal platform for experimenting with novel geospatial analysis methods. Equally important is the project’s goal of providing a tool that can be used for geomatics-based education.

GRASS GIS - Geographic Resources Analysis Support System

  •    C++

Geographic Resources Analysis Support System, commonly referred to as GRASS GIS, is a Geographic Information System (GIS) used for data management, image processing, graphics production, spatial modelling, and visualization of many types of data. GRASS supports raster and vector data in two and three dimensions. The vector data model is topological, meaning that areas are defined by boundaries and centroids; boundaries cannot overlap within a single layer.

QGIS - Geographical Information System (GIS)

  •    C++

QGIS is an Open Source Geographic Information System. QGIS aims to be an easy to use GIS, providing common functions and features. The initial goal was to provide a GIS data viewer. QGIS has reached that point in its evolution and is being used by many for their daily GIS data viewing and editing needs. QGIS supports a number of raster and vector data formats, with new support easily added using the plugin architecture.

SAGA GIS - System for Automated Geoscientific Analyses

  •    Scala

GeoMesa is an open-source, distributed, spatio-temporal database built on a number of distributed cloud data storage systems, including Accumulo, HBase, Cassandra, and Kafka. Leveraging a highly parallelized indexing strategy, GeoMesa aims to provide as much of the spatial querying and data manipulation to Accumulo as PostGIS does to Postgres.

turf - A modular geospatial engine written in JavaScript

  •    Javascript

Turf is a JavaScript library for spatial analysis. It includes traditional spatial operations, helper functions for creating GeoJSON data, and data classification and statistics tools. Turf can be added to your website as a client-side plugin, or you can run Turf server-side with Node.js (see below).Download the minified file, and include it in a script tag. This will expose a global variable named turf.

Creating-maps-in-R - Introductory tutorial on graphical display of geographical information in R.

  •    TeX

This tutorial is an introduction to visualising and analysing spatial data in R based on the sp class system. For a guide to the more recent sf package check out Chapter 2 of the in-development book Geocomputation with R, the source code of which can be found at github.com/Robinlovelace/geocompr. Although sf supersedes sp in many ways, there is still merit in learning the content in this tutorial, which teaches principles that will be useful regardless of software. Specifically this tutorial focusses on map-making with R's 'base' graphics and various dedicated map-making packages for R including tmap and leaflet. It aims to teach the basics of using R as a fast, user-friendly and extremely powerful command-line Geographic Information System (GIS).

magellan - Geo Spatial Data Analytics on Spark

  •    Scala

Magellan is a distributed execution engine for geospatial analytics on big data. It is implemented on top of Apache Spark and deeply leverages modern database techniques like efficient data layout, code generation and query optimization in order to optimize geospatial queries. The application developer writes standard sql or data frame queries to evaluate geometric expressions while the execution engine takes care of efficiently laying data out in memory during query processing, picking the right query plan, optimizing the query execution with cheap and efficient spatial indices while presenting a declarative abstraction to the developer.
