As far as I know, Minecraft Realms servers function similarly to other multiplayer servers. I have been playing on a recently closed server that had this useful online function: an online dynamic world map accessible on the web page of the server. It basically is something like Google maps for Minecraft servers - one can see the Minecraft world with all the structures built by players and also there are displayed real-time locations of all online players.

Now I have started this Minecraft Realm server as a replacement for the old one, and I would like to have this online map function.

So, the question is: is this function avalible even for Minecraft Realms? If no, is there at least anything similar to this function?

No. Realms provides easy access to the multiplayer experience, but that's all. You could see Realms as a singleplayer world, but then for multiple players, similar to the "Open to LAN" option in a singleplayer world.

If you want an online world map, you will have to create or rent a server instead. Some server hosts have this feature readily available, but I think there are also Bukkit/Spigot plug-ins that allow you to do this. Honestly I have little experience with servers, but I can tell you that realms is not what you are looking for if you want an online world map.
