                         with the process of desertification through remote sensing 
                         techniques and Geographic Information System (GIS). Land use is 
                         one of the vital indicators in the identification of 
                         desertification, considering that expresses the different ways of 
                         appropriation of space by society. For the mapping of the 
                         different forms of {"}use and coverage, we adopted a

                         processed from two orbital sensors, the MODIS and Landsat TM 5, 
                         which resulted in several output products. After the development 
                         of database in GIS environment and further analysis, began 
                         identifying the 11 mapped classes. Some classes were clearly 
                         identified, due to the spatial resolution of Landsat is the case
