The article presents a description of the use modern technologies of web mapping to explore natural hazards (primarily hydrometeorological). The examples of Russian and foreign cartographic web services created for solving tasks of monitoring and mapping of such phenomena and caused by them of emergency situations, and also objectives of their monitoring and forecasting.
