The monoculture of sugar cane caused significant changes in the regional landscape and in this context that the mapping through satellite images for monitoring the expansion of sugar cane present potential for routine activity. This work has as objective map the expansion of sugar cane in the microregion of Presidente Prudente (SP), through images of the Landsat5 TM sensor. To achieve the research objective, will be necessary to perform a set of methodological procedures, among them stand out: bibliographic survey on the theme, data collection and digital image processing.
