|Abstrakt EN:||Cartographic heritage retains great historical memory. It is an important source of infor-mation that can be reliably used by many experts. Digitizing and availability of historical maps in the Internet environment allows to retain, protect and efficiently use this important source of information. Development of technologies publishing maps in the Internet environment has made great progress in last few years. Similar progress has made technologies for digitizing of historical maps. These both aspects have facilitated visualization of historical maps and have made car-tographic heritage more accessible for the general public. Many applications publishing his-torical maps have been registered in last period therefore can be said that the interest in open-ing cartographic heritage to the public is still growing. But question has arisen from the ex-pert point of view, how much additional functionality are providing web map applications publishing historical maps. Representative sample of web map applications publishing historical maps was prepared to find answers on the question. According to developed method of the taxonomy of web map applications, individual instances from the representative sample have been classified. Results of the classification provide overview of used technologies for publishing historical maps, summary of functionality provided by these web map applications and at last but not least re-sults provide list of web map applications that are publishing historical maps to the public. The results of the classification can be source for identification of web map applications providing additional functionality for further analyses of historical maps.|
