English title
Interactive Tool for Creation of More-or-Less Blind Maps

This thesis researches the problematics of generation of more or less blind maps. This term refers to maps that do not contain all the elements that are commonly found on classic maps but contain only a subset of elements that are of interest for a particular use of the map. The aim of this thesis is to create a tool for generating such maps, which allows the user to select which elements should the map contain. The tool is implemented in Python, in the form of a web application using the framework Flask. The tool can generate completely blind maps that are focused on a certain area and a certain type of landscape elements, more or less blind maps with the use of predefined templates or more or less blind maps with the use of style set created by the user that defines which elements the map consists of and how these elements are rendered on the map. The tool also offers the user a possibility of adding their own tracks to the map by importing GPX files. The tool is mainly focused on generating maps with the purpose of printing.
