Abstrakt EN: In recent past years many studies, papers and articles focused on Internet maps and web cartography have been published. They have emphasized above all the changes connected with the beginning of the era of Internet maps. These publications have mentioned the changes of the process of map construction, publication, dissemination, cartographic theory, classification of maps, user issues or evaluation of map products. Even some authors have been writing about changes of the whole cartography paradigm. This paper tries to capture another change – the Internet map represents a complete tool for information searching, integration, analysis and decision making. The visualization and presentation as the original role of maps is reduced and the role of complex information tool is made strengthen. The maps replace traditional catalogues or lists because they offer extra information on localization of points of interest and make possible not only to show descriptive information, but also spatial connections and relations. The new era of Internet (so-called Internet of Things) brings another important change – the Internet maps can not present only spatial connection but also links among all the objects on the map as well as external data and information. This paper describes connections between Internet maps, Linked Open Data approach, Volunteered geographic information and open methodologies of collecting and harmonizing of data and information. Also several selected projects will be introduced and described. The main goal of this paper is to show that changes in cartography are not finished, because they are very closely connected to any changes in the sphere of information (especially web and Internet) technologies.
