Geographic Information Systems allows visualization of spatial data (data with an associated
GPS location) in the form of a map and analyzes the relationships and patterns between data layers.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) create friendly maps that are visually understood by both growers
and researchers.
By reporting different data collections in a geographic area, Geographic Information System, can help
manufacturers better understand spatial models and relationships to make management decisions. Variability
in a geographical area has economic consequences; Understanding this variability is the first
step towards efficient vineyard management.
From a digital altitude model – DEM (a grid that covers the known territory) we can deduce:- hypsometric
map, to define the area for producing certain varieties of wine vertically; soil map, to define areas
with soil type; CLC map showing the coverage of the land; relief units map, types of geomorphological
units in the study area.
The purpose of the article is to present the current situation of vineyards located in the Vrancea



Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Production, Maps, Viticulture.
