StatPlanet – Interactive Mapping & Visualization Software

StatPlanet (formerly StatPlanet Map Maker) is a free, award-winning application for creating interactive maps which are fully customizable. In addition to maps, the software also has the option of including interactive graphs and charts to create feature-rich infographics. For more advanced features, including additional maps, support for large data sets (StatPlanet has a limit of 5 indicators), importing maps, export options and more, see StatPlanet Plus. To create a simple interactive map with a more basic set of features, please seeĀ StatPlanet Lite. Data can also be copied and pasted directly into StatPlanet using thisĀ experimental map creator tool.”


R –

R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms, Windows and MacOS. To download R, please choose your preferred CRAN mirror.
While the start can be a bit hard, this is probably the most advanced software for scripting and batch processing or when requiring SPSS but the chance to link it to maps.
