This tutorial covers subjects of how the vector data becomes a set of raster tiles you actually see when using web map providers (such as Google Maps, Bing Maps, Mapquest and others), what is map projection and how it changes the look of the map, why WMS is hard and why one should probably not try to implement it. In general, this tutorial will try to explain how the map is created.
