Abstract

The first website in Hungarian language dedicated to the presentation of basic cartographic concepts for children and young people was made in 2000, preceded by a study about the basic map concepts learnt by Hungarian pupils in Elementary and Secondary Schools. After more than 10 years from the publication of the original website, the time has arrived to update the website, considering that Internet and in particular the Web has had notable changes along this period of time and also considering possible changes in the teaching of the map concepts in the Hungarian Educational System. This decision implied not only the possible revision of the themes presented in the original website, but also the analysis of compulsory changes in the structure of the website, namely, which new programming and design tools can be used to develop the new site and which new graphic tools can be added to develop a new Web based environment.
