I just collated everyone's contributions in the first post. I thought it would make it easier for a newcomer.

A very useful page here

Of particular use to me were links including:
Quote:
Useful utilities
Random (and incomplete) list of useful file conversion utilities

osm2shp. Small application to convert from OpenStreetMap format (.osm) to Shapefile format.

shp2pgsql. The shp2pgsql data loader converts ESRI Shape files into SQL suitable for insertion into a PostGIS/PostgreSQL database. The loader has several operating modes distinguished by command line flags.

gpsbabel. GPSBabel converts waypoints, tracks, and routes between popular GPS receivers and mapping programs. It also has powerful manipulation tools for such data.
fwtools. FWTools is a set of Open Source GIS binaries for Windows (win32) and Linux (x86 32bit) systems.

This co-ordinate converter is a handy one to bookmark
It's useful for converting co-ordinates taken by GPS or app during field trips, to the co-ordinates employed by various online mapping resources.
