Abstrakt CZ: Počítačové technologie stále více pronikají do kartografie. Ale musí být řečeno, že podpora a implementace širokého spektra kartografických metod vizualizace patří mezi slabé většiny počítačových systémů zaměřených na vizualizace prostorových dat. Tato práce se snaží tuto mezeru zaplnit. Představuje XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations) šablony a tzv. kontrolní soubor určený pro generování některých typů tématických map (např. různé typy choropleth mapy nebo mapy diagram).
Abstrakt EN: Computer technologies gain ground in the cartography. But it could be told that a support or an implementation of wide spectrum of cartographic interpretation methods is ranked among weak points of majority of computer systems focused on spatial data visualisation. This paper tries to fill this gap. It presents XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations) templates and their control file designed for the generating of some types of thematic maps (e.g. different types of choropleth maps or diagram maps). The XSLT language were selected base on following reasons: Very good cooperation with all XML (Extensible Markup Language) standards, including the format GML (Geography Markup Language) for spatial data describing and the format SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) for vector graphics describing. XSLT is standardised by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). XSLT is strongly supported by many software products, e.g. XSLT processors, XML editors or web page browsers. The applications created by force of XSLT could be multiplatform, modular, well-structured and of course open. Output thematic maps could be presented through the Internet, because they are generated in SVG format supported (directly or by plug-in) by main web page browser. Some examples of created thematic maps for temporal spatial data were tested in the VisualHealth project. This project tests different methods of visualisation of spatial data of healthcare.
