The space regarded as land, as the primary support of mankind has undergone continuous evaluations from the source of raw materials, means of agricultural production, forestry source to the location of social and urban activities being thus an invaluable asset. The land’s potential is invaluable, so that its efficient, correct, accurate management is a sine qua non condition for keeping it with all its benefits. Modern, its management can best be done through the Geographical Information System. The territorial arrangement combines the balanced development of the exhaustible geophysical elements, respecting the cultural, social, traditional (historical) elements of the environment and helps to harmonize them and to avoid the negative evolutions. Territorial planning is the basis of sustainable development policies. The theoretical notions that support the realization of the case study - creating the solar map of Timiș county, Romania using open source GIS programs - are thoroughly documented, including aspects regarding solar energy mapping and the methodology of solar irradiation calculation as well as the current global context in which emphasis is put on the use of renewable energy
