Gambol[5] is a Euclidean, construction-based, drawing system
[edit] GCLC

GCLC[6] is a dynamic geometry tool for visualizing and teaching geometry, and
for producing mathematical illustrations. In GCLC figures are described rather
than drawn. This approach stresses the fact that geometrical constructions are
abstract, formal procedures and not figures. A concrete figure can be generated
on the basis of abstract description. There are several output formats,
including LaTeX, LaTeX/PStricks, LaTeX/Tikz, SVG, PostScript. There is a
built-in geometry theorem prover (based on the area method). GCLC is available
for Windows and Linux. WinGCLC is a Windows version of GCLC with graphical
interface and provides a range of additional functionalities.
[edit] GeoGebra

GeoGebra is free software that joins geometry, algebra and calculus for
mathematics education in schools and universities.

    License: open source under GNU General Public License (free of charge)
    Languages: 55
    Geometry: points, lines, all conic sections, vectors, parametric curves,
locus lines
    Algebra: direct input of cartesian or polar coordinates, linear and
quadratic equations; calculations with numbers, points and vectors
    Calculus: direct input of functions; intersections and roots of functions;
symbolic derivatives and integrals (built in CAS); sliders as parameters
    Parametric Graphs: Yes
    Web Export: all constructions exportable as web pages; JavaScript interface
for interactive exercises
    Macros: usable both as tools with the mouse and as commands in the input
    Animation: Yes
    Spreadsheet: Yes, the cells can contain any GeoGebra object (Numbers,
Points, Functions etc.)
    Dynamic text: Yes (including LaTeX)
    Platforms: Mac OS, Unix/Linux, Windows (anything which supports Java 1.4.2
or later)
    Continuity: uses a heuristic 'near-to-approach' to avoid jumping objects
