|Abstrakt EN:||Cartographers work with many various technologies and software enabling a development of web cartographic products. Majority of these applications have two typical characteristic features ? they are quite simple to use and process spatial data, but they are very poor with the respect to cartography. They have a limit number of cartographic techniques available. Therefore they are not able to exploit and cover richness of cartography. It is one of the reason why we use XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language ? Transformation) styles in the development process of web thematic maps in the University of West Bohemia in Plzen (Czech Republic). This contribution introduces another benefits of XSLT implementation, including spatial data exploitation, processing and visualization. There are also a lot of examples of maps which have been created by the XSLT styles. The approach based on XSLT styles does not represent only a programmers? task but also the research connected to particular questions of data harmonization or correct implementation of cartographic techniques. Moreover the XSLT styles and transformations (as well as all structures based on XML) interconnect web cartography with many activities of contemporary geomatics and geoinformatics (including Spatial Data Infrastructures, INSPIRE directive, semantic data or Open Linked Data).|
