comment What free GIS software is the best for graphic production?
QGIS allows you to style geographic data and export print-quality graphics (PDF, PNG, etc) at your desired resolution/size using print composer. If you need to do anything else I'd suggest using Inkscape. This workflow mimics what cartographers do using ArcMap and Adobe Illustrator.

comment Retrieving Spatial Database data in a google api
let us know what type of database you're using. You might have to convert your table to a format like KML for use with the javascript API, but I can't remember what formats that API supports anymore... (the more detail you can provide the better!)

comment How to geocode a single address in Python Script/ ModelBuilder?
You need a geocoder, or a geocoder service, and you would use the 'Geocode an Address' tool in the model, where the input is a text variable and the locator is the geocoder mentioned above.

comment How to merge an excel file with a shapefile in r
Is this something you're going to do more than once, ie. you want to automate it with R, or will you be doing it only once, and hence you could use QGIS to put this data together before using it in your analysis?

comment Point-in-polygon using WGS84 geographic coordinate system
WGS84 is fine for this operation... projections would be more useful for getting area/lengths, etc.

comment Is there any reason not to upgrade to Windows 8.1?
@TingL please share that info because a few of us had huge issues and read a lot of forum posts that documented the change Windows 8 made to the boot loader process basically eliminating the ability to load Ubuntu on dual-boot... thanks!
