How can I visualise AIXM data on a map?

This is one of the most frequent questions asked by those who start discovering AIXM. Although AIXM uses the Geography Markup Language (GML) standard, there are some particularities of the aeronautical data that require a bit of specialised processing, on top of the standard GML viewers.  This page lists a number of free AIXM Viewers that are available for download and local use.
