Description An issue of our article is a design of an open electronic atlas of the South Moravia region. The Atlas is open for inserting new cartographic methods and themes. In frame of the design of the atlas we can distinguish three main parts. First one is a publishing environment composed from atlas engine, client interface, inserting interface and procedures. Second one is a reference base which is selection of important topographic features with core in landscape skeleton. Last one is cartographic infrastructure, a key part of the Atlas. The infrastructure is composed from generalization and visualization schemas and methods, visualization styles, verification mechanisms and transformation procedures.
