Nowadays, G.I.S. is widely used in the traditional cultivation of vines. The vineyard cultivation
in Vrancea County is a traditional activity specific to this hilly area. G.I.S. provides tools and
information on how the vineyard is cultivated, depending on the environmental factors that influence
it: climate, soil, geological substrate through created maps using the ArcMap 10.5 program. G.I.S. is
a tool that can be used to analyse and improve vineyard management decisions, and is also a powerful
tool in collection, analysis and monitoring data.
This article aims to show that different spatial analysis tools used nowadays can play an important role
in monitoring vine plantations and implicitly in increasing the production of grapes that will end up as
obtained quality wines. To create the slope map and the solar radiation map, it was used a DEM (digital
elevation model) with a resolution of 30m. With the help of the created maps, it is possible to make a
spatial analysis of the resources within Vrancea County.
