In the article are reviewed the basics of the modern approaches to the development of Electronic Atlases and Atlas Information Systems (AtIS) within the context of “Big Data”. The research methodology is based on the systematic usage of so called “Atlas relational patterns” ˗ generalization of the Conceptual Framework of the electronic version of the National atlas of Ukraine to the Conceptual Framework of AtIS (AtIS CF), as well as classical and neoclassical Atlas Solutions Frameworks (AtlasSF). The main results of work are structured according to AtIS CF. The “relational geographies” and cartography geovisualization paradigm are determinative in the Language context of AtIS CF. Epistemological model of the general systems theory and the pattern-based ontological model are definitive basics of modern and future Atlas Information Systems. The novelty: for the first time in cartography atlas relation patterns are used to identify the most promising modern approaches to the development of electronic atlases in context of “big data”.

Key words: 
Big Data, Atlas relational patterns, Conceptual frameworks, Solutions frameworks, Atlas Solutions Framework, electronic atlases, atlas information systems, atlas development approaches
