Abstracts
Primarily we dealt with the problem of toponyms placement on web maps and it can be noticed that even today on most visited sites with web maps toponyms placement is not in accordance with the cartographic principles, cartographic visualization conditions or cartographic generalization rules. There are good and bad examples of toponyms placement on web maps and the good are generally those who adhere to the cartographic principles for toponym label placement used for printed maps but are also implemented on the web maps. A simple method for decision of visible or invisible label is proposed when label is shown in a complex map environment with all other cartographic elements and different layers as it is usual on web maps. The perfect solution can be approached but we have to wait for more complex systems that apply artificial intelligence on which for now we think in theoretical form, that would use different ways of learning by examples and by own mistakes, much like humans do.
