Application of GIS systems in Agriculture nowadays is an essential tool for managing, monitoring and updating crops information in daily, monthly or annual basis. A review of number of OpenGeo products exposed worldwide shows that there have been major
improvements in much functionality recently. The application of GIS systems in agriculture is also recommended by European Commission for countries which are being prepared to join European Union (LPIS, vineyard cadastre etc.). For the wine cultivation in Kosovo, it can be reviewed that in early decades, the crops were
concentrated only in geographically specific areas, while in the 70-ies during the socialist system the wine industry incurs a considerable increase and has been extended in the west half-part of Kosovo. The most quantity of wine was produced for west
European market, so in this way the flow of the wine industry has increased. Privatization of the several vineries in 2006 has revived the hope that Kosovo could have developed a quite wine industry, always referring to its natural advantages and once again to turn its wine industry into a reliable source of state revenue. The idea to
have a modern vineyard cadastral system based on GIS with large scale of functionalities for data storing, processing and analysis has been presented in this study. The system is developed in Java and OpenGeo Architecture (PostGIS, GeoServer,
GeoWebCache and OpenLayers) following OpenGIS standards acquiescent for Web Map Service (WMS) and Web Feature Service (WFS). Data are stored in a spatial data
base, whereby they are managed/presented in a dynamically proper web window, accomplished with graphics, charts, statistics and forms. For the geospatial orientation, Google Earth, DTM, Soil map and other image layers (Orthophotos, scanned maps etc.) have been incorporated.
