The contribution describes general principles of the web services and XML applications. Importance and advantages of their utilization are explained. A detailed orientation is then aimed at the Web Map Services (WMS) being developed on the basis of the Open GIS Consortium (OGC). These services enable e.g. on-line composition of thematic maps defined by the user in an Internet browser window, from data being provided by servers with WMS. Thus the user does not need to own any data, although he can compose a topical thematic map representing a chosen territory, and the map contents he specifies himself.

In the contribution a particular example of a web XML application for on-line calculations is given, with a utilization of WMS for presentation of their results as well. Necessary principles, advantages and the importance of XML format are very briefly explained, so that any reader can fully understand the mentioned principles of services founded on this format.
