Geohosting is a complex system composed of single components-applications. These components are integrated into one fully functional system. This complex system enables easy creation and publication of new map compositions. It enables you to work not only with your own geographic data but also through web services with external geographic data. The number of available online data sources is still increasing. The advantage is that original data stay at the level where they are collected and maintained. Therefore there is no duplication of data. Up-to-date source data guarantee up-to-date map compositions.
