Peterson 1. 1 Introduction The Mosaic browser, the ? rst to support graphics, was introduced in 1993 and, at some point during that year, the ? rst map was transmitted through the Internet to a web page. Little notice was taken of the ? rst web map but the development of Internet cartography since has been nothing but remarkable. The new medium of communication changed maps from static entities on paper to dynamic products of interaction. Millions of maps are now created by servers every hour and transmitted through the Internet. When we need to ? nd a place or ? nd out about a place, we turn immediately to these servers through the Internet. In a few short years, the World Wide Web has transformed the Internet into the primary medium for the dissemi- tion of spatial information in the form of maps.
