Current paper introduces the use of Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) for the cartographic workflow aimed at the geological datavisualization. Among the wide range of GIS software used for mapping and geospatial data modelling, GMT stands apart from the traditional tools such as ArcGIS ( ESRI Team, 2010 ), QGIS ( QGIS, 2019 ) and MapINFO. The particularity of the GMT comparing to the standard GIS consists in its fundamentally different approach towards geodata processing. The GMT, originally developed by Wessel and Smith (1998) is not a classic
Advanced terrain models are currently commonly used in many video/computers games. Professional GIS technologies, existing spatial datasets and cartographic methodology are more widely used in their development. This allows for achieving a realistic model of the world. On the other hand, the so-called game engines have very high capability of spatial data visualization. Preparing terrain models for the purpose of video games requires knowledge and experience of GIS specialists and cartographers, although it is also accessible for non-professionals. The authors point out commonness and variety of use of terrain models in video games and the existence of a series of ready, advanced tools and procedures of terrain model creating. Finally the authors describe the experiment of performing the process of data modeling for “Condor Soar Simulator”.
Map projections are very important in the compilation of various types of maps and spatial databases. Geographical information systems provide their users with the significant opportunities in the choice of map projections, coordinate systems, their definitions and transitions between them. The role of map projection can be considered depending on an objective, for which a map has to be used, user of this map and a form of its publication. The Internet, mobile devices and GIS caused that the map projections are used for two main purposes: data visualization and performing of calculations and analyses. The role of map projections is still important, despite the changes occurring in cartography. The rules for the applications of map projections developed over the centuries are still valid. However, the new rules resulting from the new functions of map projections are also created. The aim of this article, that is the author’s overview of map projections, is to illustrate the broad spectrum of applications for the map projections.

, only a subpart (the rectangle 2.5 ⨯ 2 km covering the city centre including, for example, Prague Castle or Charles Bridge) was used. The intention was to describe the principles of data transformation, storage and visualization, which can be later applied on larger data sets. In particular, the following objects were available:
