featured program in Indonesia cannot be separated entirely from commodity
strategic bases. Until in 2006, agricultural development formulation showed
indicative targets for featured crops commodity production. The problem of food
security is forming of farmer’s independence to protect local resources in
efficiently and optimally, so these resources can be more utilized. It can be
achieved by assist of information technologies and communication in forming of
Geographic Information System (GIS) to support consistency of food security in
Indonesia. This research designs prototype geographic information system in
order to conduct the accurate mapping and to know the local featured crops
production in Indonesia. This level is conducted for documentation and mapping
of agricultural products which is the local featured production. This
documentation requires the usage of potential physical, economic, social and
cultural environment by the utilization of information technology and
communication, which have the ability of relevancy and accessibility of
