Resumo

This research deals with the city of Imperatriz - MA, with a particular focus on the development of its urban space. In this sense, it aimed to analyze the development of the city under three fundamental aspects: the territorial breakdown, the population dynamics and the growth of the urban network. For this, the period of urban consolidation proved to be a good method of analyzing city transformations. Thus, we sought to diagnose the historical growth process of the urban fabric and its current situation. Census data, historical documents and bibliographic consultations were handled. In addition, remote sensing images were processed and techniques used in Geographic Information Systems - GIS in the elaboration of cartographic products aimed at spatio-temporal analysis. The results allowed to distinguish the dynamics suff ered by the municipality and its reverberations in the urban network in four evolutionary stages, of which, the last one was important as an instrument of evaluation of recent strategies, guiding new vectors of contemporary expansion of the city.
