This question already has an answer here:
Is there any place one can find a list of ArcGIS alternative or near-alternative tools found in (any of) the open source softwares? I am not looking for software but individual tools found in the software.
I started my GIS career with ArcGIS. Today I am using more and more Open Source software such as QGIS, SAGA GIS, and R among others. I have spent hours and hours of time when finding different tools that do the same thing as those so conveniently found in ArcGIS (because you know what to look for). It would be very convenient and time saving to just check the alternative from a list than spend time googling and reading various manuals and doing trial and error at your desktop.
e.g., ArcMap: Spatial Analyst: Raster calculator - SAGA GIS: Grid Calculus: Grid Calculator
I see that there are several threads dealing with this, but they are regarding this with a smaller scope:
- Seeking open source alternative to ArcGIS Desktop's Integrate tool?
- GDAL (or other open-source) equivalent of Arc's Point To Raster Tool
- Are there open source alternatives to ArcCatalog?
I am looking after a comprehensive, "dictionary type" of list.
So is there a comprehensive list or a site regarding this, and if not, how could we get one? I think this would be very useful for a whole lot of people!
