Abstrakt EN: Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) represents the well-known standard used for description of two-dimensional vector graphics in the world of web technologies. This paper tries to sketch out the possibilities of SVG in cartography. The cartographic potential of SVG is supported by par- ticular SVG drawing elements and their attributes, that are able to cover requirements on map symbols and their parametrization by graphical vari- ables. There are also another properties of SVG important for cartography and map making ? transformations, grouping of elements, labeling or sup- port of various types of multimedia (sound, animation, raster graphics). It is also necessary to emphasize other very important characteristics of SVG ? it is completely open standard and technology (from views of license, ac- cessibility, extensibility etc.). This paper describes not only particular part of SVG standard, but also selected libraries working with SVG maps and some examples of implementation of SVG in the Geomatics section in the University of West Bohemia in Plzeň (Czech Republic).
