PORTIS, Gabriela Tobias; SANTOS, Alex Mota dos  and  NUNES, Fabrizia Gioppo. Spatial-temporal analysis of land use change under influence of a travel generator in Goiânia, GO, Brazil. Ambient. constr. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.3, pp.513-525.  Epub July 03, 2020. ISSN 1678-8621.

The analysis of the dynamics of changes in patterns of land use and occupation, which is essential for the planning of urban areas, can be done indirectly through remote sensing orbital images. Orbital images have proven to be important tools for measuring and monitoring human activities on Earth. Thus, this paper aims to map the surrounding areas of Passeio das Águas Shopping Center, located in the northern region of Goiânia, Brazil, assigning to it the condition of Travel Generator (TG). Hence, this study analysed the dynamics of change in land use and cover in its surroundings. The methodology used was based on the digital processing of orbital images in a Geographic Information System (GIS) environment. The results showed that, in a 10-year interval, there was a reduction of the vegetation area, and a significant increase in the paved and built areas, promoting significant changes in the land use pattern after the implementation of the TG.
