Summary/Abstract: In this paper, systematic archaeological research was approached in order to build in the GIS environment the altimetric numerical models of the lands subject to archaeological research at the Apoulon Fortress. The research at the Apoulon Dacian Fortress began in 1960 and were started by Gh. Anghel, and the data used in the project were taken topographically in the 2005, 2006 and 2007 campaigns. The database created is constantly used by researchers in order to arrange, preserve or rehabilitate the archaeological heritage and historical monuments and therefore must always be updated. The use of modern GNSS and GIS technologies was used to take over and process the information from the field. The advantages of this systematic research would benefit both the institutions dealing with real estate in our country and the public interested in research and the history of discoveries.
