Dear Shawn,
the project you presented seems to be very interesting and helpful for all.
I had a quick look at the article you linked and, even if I didn't
investigated in deep which kind of processing tools you will need to do, I
can add to your list the Free and Open Source tools that are integrated in
the gvSIG desktop GIS (www.gvSIG.org):
- the JGrassTools library, which have tools for the analysis of vector and
raster data (http://moovida.github.io/jgrasstools/ -
- the Geoprocessing toolbox of gvSIG itself (
which contains a lot of additional analysis tools especially on vector data.

If you have more specific questions or if you have/nee to find geospatial
data to analyse and have an idea on which kind of analysis you would do,
feel free to contact me in private and I will be very happy to help you for
this research.

Best regards
