The development of internet technologies has led to a growing internet population and dramatically changed patterns of map use. Recently web map as a burgeoning communication tool has developed rapidly for the advantages of operating simply and immediately information distributing and sharing. But on the other hand, web map has to be faced with some problems such as transmitting speed, spatial data sharing, spatial information expressing and etc. W3C put forward the standard for web vector graphics---SVG(Scalable Vector Graphics). As a new technology based on XML, SVG had several key functions particularly suitable for cartographic solutions such as coordinate system, layer management, high level parameter on graphics elements, well designed interactive function and etc.
paper concentrated on the methods of designing and implementing dynamic and
interactive web map of the campus of
