creating their own maps, on their own terms and by combining elements
of an existing toolset. Andrew Turner, 2007.

Internet Mapping
A
mapping service allows you to create maps on
their server, on the internet. You don’t need any
special programs downloaded because you are
creating a map on a server that provides you with
the ability to interact with their software and data.
 These
types of sites vary with features – with some
allowing you only basic input, whereas others
support customizable legends, titles, and selective
datasets.
