HEURIST is an extremely flexible data management system designed specifically for Humanities data - see http://HeuristNetwork.org. It is available as a free web service for researchers (hosted at the University of Sydney Data Centre) or for local installation (Open Source). Any confident researcher can design, create, manage, analyse, visualise and publish their own richly-structured database(s) through a simple web interface, without programmers or consultants. Quite complex databases can be built in a few hours through borrowing structures and vocabularies published by other users. Databases can be designed and built incrementally, as existing data are not affected by changes in structure. Advanced features include record linking, drilldown facet searches, rule-based queries, custom reports, linked map-timelines, network visualisation, normalised spreadsheet import, crosstabulation, XML feeds, XSLT transforms.
ERDAS Imagine is a suite of geospatial data authoring software. The suite contains a raster graphics editor and remote sensing application that performs advanced remote sensing analysis and spatial modelling to create new information. ERDAS IMAGINE can also visualize results in 2D, 3D, video, and on cartographic quality map compositions. It is primarily designed for geospatial raster data processing and the creation of digital images for mapping use in GIS or CAD software.

CulturalAnalytics is an R package containing functions for statistical analysis and plotting of image properties, including statistics such as the standard deviation and mean in the RGB and HSV color spaces, image entropy and histograms in greyscale (intensity) and color, and for plotting color clouds and image scatter charts.
Praat is software for the phonetic analysis of speech, including support for articulatory and speech synthesis.
Inkscape is an open-source vector based imaging programme similar to Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, Freehand, or Xara X.
Photoshop Express allows simple web-based image editing and cloud storage (2 GB free via Adobe Revel), as well as video storage and streaming, slideshow templates, and a photo gallery. Features include online galleries and slideshows, exporting and searching images, and privacy settings. Android, Windows and iOS (including iPad) apps are available.
Adobe Bridge is a media management application used for organizing, browsing, locating, and viewing creative assets. It was provided as a part of the Adobe Creative Suite, beginning with CS2, and is now in version CS5
- Tightly integrated with other Adobe suite software (except for the standalone version of Adobe Acrobat 8)
TouchGraph is a Java application that creates network graphs of websites returned in Google searches.
Ptolemaic is a computer application for music visualization and analysis written in the Java programming language. The software is designed to aid in the analysis of all types of Western music using established analytical techniques, including tonal functional analysis (Harrison 1994), pitch-class set analysis (Forte 1973), hierarchical linear analysis (Schenker 1935, Jones 2002), tonal pitch-space analysis on the Tonnetz (Riemann 1915), pitch-class set analysis (Forte 1973), and transformation analysis (Lewin 1987).
NodeBox is an application for creating 2D graphics and visualizations. It provides a visual and process-based editor for an underlying Python-based analysis and visualisation package. It is developer-described as a generative design app and this really taps into the serendipitous nature of the environment. The user constructs models and can tweak them in real time via the interface and see the resulting changes too the output.
It has been described as being "similar to Processing, but without all the interactivity".
This is a free to use online image editor with a fair amount of features. I use this primarily for quick editing jobs such as resizing and cropping small images. The online editor will load images from your computer or via url which is incredibly handy. There is a firefox plug-in available too which makes the time it takes to view an image, edit, and save it, a fast process. The source code for the application is closed, but the dev team does offer a free API. Pixlr also has tools for mobile devices, one of which is paid app for $1.
Gerbil is a generic framework for visualization and analysis of multispectral and hyperspectral data that strives to both bring new innovations in analysis capabilities and be of use in a wide range of hyperspectral data applications. In a nutshell, Gerbil lets you…
