In this work we demonstrate a particular use of ontologies for visualising maps in a browser window. The GIS data are represented in the OWL data format that corresponds to the ontology of transporation networks (OTN). These data are transformed into Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). The transformation is specified symbolically as instances of a transformation ontology. This approach is extremely flexible and easily extendible to include all kinds of information in the generated maps.
