Choosing software

Hello, I have no experience with ESRI software (or GIS), and I need your help coming up with a package.   I am assembling a site study for 700+ acres in the USA.  What I need to do:

  1. Import data from other data bases (USGS, FEMA, DOI, USFW, etc)

  2. Import images I can digitize for 2D spatial zones

  3. Overlay the polygons and adjust transparency to produce a highest and best use map

  4. Plot existing infrastructure and perform asset management for long-term

This looked like a useful model:

What I have:

What I can choose from:

  • ArcView

  • ArcGIS Publisher

  • ArcGIS Spatial Analyst

  • ArcGIS 3D Analyst

  • ArcGIS Network Analyst

  • ArcEditor

Thanks for your help!
