The city of Timisoara is the city that has registered in the last years an upward trend of development, from an economic and demographic point of view. The city of Timisoara has a long history that begins with ancient human settlements on the present hearth of the city and then with the appearance of the first fortified city, around the century. XII. Thus, Timisoara has a vast cultural heritage that, unfortunately, at the moment is not fully exploited, those interested (city dwellers or tourists) not having available easy mechanisms to obtain information on local heritage and access to these objectives. Timisoara is located at an altitude of approximately 90m in the south east of Banat Plain, which is part of the Panonia Plain due to the divergence between the Bega and Timiș rivers, which make this land a marshy and frequently flooded area. These rivers were a natural protection for the fortress of Timișoara for a long period of time, but they also contributed to the humid and unsanitary climate, to the spread of the diseases of that period having a relatively small number of citizens. During the time these rivers were drained and diverted, during the eighteenth century, so Timisoara was no longer on the river Timis but on the Bega Canal, due to the construction of the Bega Canal - 1728 and due to the complete drainage of the marshes in that area. The land of the city of Timisoara is located above a groundwater at a depth of only 0.5 - 5 m, a factor that prevents the construction of high objectives in safe conditions. However, due to these aspects, the soil in this region is of a higher quality so this region is considered a very fertile agricultural region. An important initiative to enhance the local cultural heritage was to obtain the status of European Cultural Capital 2021, one of the findings of this step being the need for a better correlation between the IT&C sector, which is in full swing in the last year of economic development of the city and the sector. cultural through the use of modern IT&C solutions, easy to promote the culture and the local cultural heritage at the level of the interested inhabitants and tourists. In this context, through this paper we propose the creation of digital maps in a GIS environment, through which any interested user can access information regarding the location and description of a total number of 118 monuments of local cultural heritage (type A and B, cf. Ord. 2314/2004 and 2385/2008).
