OpenAnthroStat. The most important piece of software in Anthropology, the gold standard for freelist data, was written in 1992 and can't be used on modern operating systems. I am working to replace it with an open source alternative written in python that can be used on modern Windows, Mac, and Unix-like operating systems. Currently, version Brisbane ingests freelist data and returns the saliences. Included are python implementations of Smith & Borgatti 1998 and Sutrop 2001.
ArcExtractor. An extention to ArcMap, written in Python, that extracts a CSV for every entry in a particular field of a GIS data layer.
