During the process of building iFlightPlanner, we reviewed a number of GIS mapping software applications to help with various tasks, including the processing of digital aviation and aeronautical charts from the FAA. 

Now that we've completed our research and development in that area, we wanted to give a special mention to Global Mapper.  If your company or organization needs to work with geographical data in any image formats (PDF, GeoTIFF, JPG, etc), we definitely recommend you use Global Mapper.  Not only does it handle an incredible variety of image formats and projections with ease, their customer support is second to none, providing insightful answers to any and all questions at all times of the day.

And last, but certainly not least, Global Mapper's SDK makes it possible to integrate advanced mapping tasks directly into your own applications as well, which provides tremendous flexibility to developers.
