Geographical Information System(GIS) is composed of hardware, software, data, human and methods. Among the components, data is considered to be the most important factor in GIS. In this paper, we describes HVF, the most recent technology pioneered by GIS researchers. HVF is a format for efficient usage of spatial object in order to express, save and transform in Internet GIS. First, we describe the definition of HVF syntax, then the implementation of Header Section Generation Module and Main Section Generation Module through the API. Second, we develop a spatial object converter for HVF to transform figures into data structures, which are compatible among different GIS applications. For this purpose, we design and implement three units of modules, which are File Manipulation, HVF Import and HVF Export Module. Since the issues of network traffic and Hangul processing in Internet GIS are important, we especially consider development of HVF in terms of spatial data size.
