The author considers (set-valued) maps of bounded variation taking values in metric or normed spaces. The following structure theorem is proved: A map \(f: [a,b]\to X\) has bounded variation iff there is a nondecreasing bounded function \(\varphi: [a,b]\to \mathbb{R}\) and a map \(g\) satisfying \(V(g,[c,d])= d-c\) for every \(a\leq c\leq d\leq b\) such that \(f= g\circ\varphi\). It is shown that every compact set-valued map into a Banach space that is of bounded variation (or Lipschitz, or absolutely continuous) has a selection of bounded variation (Lipschitz or absolutely continuous, respectively).
