|Abstrakt EN:||Ontologies represent very powerful tool of data and information processing, including spatial data and information. But many users consider ontologies as very abstract, complicated and expert technologies without any concrete real output. In the project plan4business (http://www.plan4business.eu/) and other research activities in the University of West Bohemia (Plzen, Czech Republic) the ontology describing administrative classification of the Czech Republic, competency of various state authorities, their scope and mutual relations has been developed. This ontological system deals with spatial data and contains geographical coordinates as one of properties. Therefore it is possible to present information from the ontology as a map. This paper introduces an approach how to exploit selected information from ontology and transform to a file in the format KML (Keyhole Markup Language), that represents clear output of the complex ontological system. As the key technology the XSLT (Extensible Markup Language Transformation) templates and processor are used.|
