A vector graphics editor, with specialized import filters for many vector formats. It can be used for desktop publishing, vector graphics conversion, and through commercial modules it performs the role of a CAM workstation. It supports vector editing, blending, color separation, PDF and PostScript direct editing, importing of 2D DXF, Gerber files, HPGL, DIN and derivatives like Sieb&Meyer, Wessel and Excellon. It supports vectorization, layers, paths and text along paths.

CinePaint is a collection of free open source software tools for deep paint manipulation and image processing. CinePaint is used for motion picture frame-by-frame retouching, dirt removal, wire rig removal, render repair, background plates, and 3d model textures. It's been used on many feature films, among them "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen", "Harry Potter", "The Last Samurai", "SpiderMan". It's also being used by pro photographers who need greater color fidelity than is available in other tools. CinePaint is fundamentally different from other painting tools because it handles high fidelity image formats such as Kodak Cineon, SMPTE DPX, and ILM-NVIDIA OpenEXR. CinePaint has vast dynamic range: 16-bits per channel (64-bit RGBA). That's more range than can be displayed on a computer monitor (24-bit RGB), but can make a visible difference when working with film. Film scanners have more range than monitors, and can capture a superior image from film. Even with images that started in 8-bit, conversion to 16-bit can preserve color information that can otherwise be lost during the editing process. Such loss of fidelity can be visible as banding when an image is eventually printed back to film or blown up to higher magnification for a still print. The extended dynamic range of CinePaint appeals not just to 35mm cinematographers, but to 35mm still photographers as well. Still photographers can think of CinePaint as having many more F-stops of range, of being capable of capturing much more subtle nuances of color in a vast blue sky for instance. CinePaint handles 8-bit, 16-bit linear, and 16-bit float images.

gvSIG is a tool oriented to manage geographic information. It is characterized by a user-friendly interface, with a quick access to the most usual raster and vector formats. In the same view it includes local as well as remote data through a WMS, WCS or WFS source. It is aimed at users of geographic information, whether professionals or civil servants (city councils, councils, regional councils or ministries) from any part of the world ( at the moment its interface is in Spanish, Valencian, English, Basque, Gallego, Czech, Chinese, French, German, Italian and Portuguese), in addition to being free. The SEXTANTE extensions adds additional functionalities.

Inkscape is an Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format. Inkscape supports many advanced SVG features (markers, clones, alpha blending, etc.) and great care is taken in designing a streamlined interface. It is very easy to edit nodes, perform complex path operations, trace bitmaps and much more.

Quantum GIS (QGIS) is a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System (GIS) that runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OSX, and Windows. QGIS supports vector, raster, and database formats. QGIS is licensed under the GNU General Public License. QGIS lets you browse and create map data on your computer. It supports many common spatial data formats (e.g. ESRI ShapeFile, geotiff). QGIS supports plugins to do things like display tracks from your GPS. It supports raster and vector types, integration with GRASS, digitizing tools, print composer, OGC support, spatial bookmarks, feature labeling, graticule builder, raster georeferencing.

The User-friendly Desktop Internet GIS (uDig) is both a GeoSpatial application and a platform through which developers can create new, derived applications. uDig is a core element in an internet aware Geographic Information System, and provides an infrastructure for the creation of complete GIS environments. For example, the GRASS GIS system is integrated in uDIG through the JGrass module (Primarily dedicated to hydrological and geomorphological analyses).
