The environment in which maps have been produced and used has changed considerably. The World Wide Web (WWW) is today's prominent medium to disseminate geospatial data and maps. In the past, producing maps was the realm of cartographers. However, making maps via the WWW includes potentially everyone having access to this new medium. These new mapmakers have different demands, and force a change from a traditional supply-driven map production to demand-driven map production. This has been facilitated by a so-called geospatial data infrastructure. Its distributed character allows one to combine data from different resources via specific geoservices. These services can be simple maps display operations, or be more complex by providing driving instructions or executing coordinate transformations.
