This dissertation aimed to fulfill a general analysis of the intensity of the light pollution triggered by urban growth occurred in the Cerrado biome and in the Metropolitan Region of Goiânia in the period from 1992 to 2010. To this end, the present work drew on remote sensing data, specifically of the images of the sensor system DMSP-OLS (Defense Meteorological Satellite Program-Operational Linescan System) and of Geoprocessing techniques for spatialization and measurement of light pollution. As part of the results, it is recognized that the light spots are concentrated mainly in metropolis and major urban centers, in consequence of the largest population concentration. In the metropolitan region of Goiânia, the capital has the highest indexes of consumption of electrical energy and the largest population concentration of the state; consequently, holds the largest spot of the light pollution in the region.
