Clients and tools that support GML Read and/or Write

The following is an incomplete list of known clients and toolkits that support the ability to at a minimum ingest a GML file and display the contents of that GML file. If anyone knows of other clients (free or for fee), please let us know. Finally, just to be clear, any transactional Web Feature Service (WFS) reads GML and any compliant WFS writes GML. So clients that support a WFS interface most likely also support some level of processing of GML files. Please note that the following list is not an enummeration of server products that support GML. This list can be found on the OGC Implementing Products page. You may also refine your search of implementing products by going to "View By Specification".
