I have heard some good things about Tatuk and Manifold. I have not tried
them myself but their users seem to be very happy with the product
especially when the price is considered.

Kristal -

There's another good alternative for data creation and analysis, some
competition for ESRI's ArcGIS - it's called "TatukGIS". Tatuk has a
full-featured editing program for lots less $$ than ESRI; we use their
free viewer for our folks who do not create data.

The Tatuk programs can use a wide variety of file formats, including
shapefiles, DXF, raster, etc.
And the learning curve for Tatuk is short - I speak as an ESRI veteran
