What geo-tool do you need?

What app should exist for geoscientists? It could be a web app, mobile app, web API, code library, or I suppose it could even be a desktop application.

Please vote on these, add remarks, or add your own ideas!

Martin Storey

Can we comment on some of these wishes - e.g. to mention that a part-solution may already exist?

Greg Samways

I wonder if Martin was looking for a "comment" button. I just put my comments in the arguments, which are either for or against.

Stevejpurves

I'd guess so. Similar functionality that already exists could either be a pro (proves a need) or con (already done so well there is no point) depending. Its valuable knowledge in any case.
