The paper is accomplished in the framework of the LIFE09 ENV/RO/000612 - CLEANWATER project, which foresees the development of an integrated GIS approach for the management of nitrogen pollution, at watershed level; with emphasis on modelling tools and field campaign for analyze the nutrients vulnerable zones. The project facilitates the implementation of Community environmental policy (e.g. WFD Nitrates Directive) at local and regional level, creating a complex watershed database for assess the factors, pressures and responses that impact the water resources. The goal of this paper is to analyze the nitrates pollution from agriculture sources, within the Barlad River Basin, using a GIS approach. Evaluation of human impact using GIS environment offers a global view of the pollution problems at the basin scale and improve the local and central authority’s analysis in the field of nutrient management.

Keywords: GIS system, nitrates vulnerable zones, open source software
