Tarumã açu is a neighborhood located in the west of the city of Manaus, in which in recent decades we have accompanied the progressive increase in pollution and degradation from anthropic actions that occurred in the city, making it difficult to preserve resources water and its green areas, which maintains its ecological chain of the region through the maintenance of fauna and flora, in addition to preserving the natural characteristics of the site. For the research, a set of LANDAT-8 satellite images, operational terra imager (TERRA) sensor, in geotiff format, colored composition of RBG bands, with spatial resolution of 30 x 30 m, was selected. The scene of the study area were the orbits from 231 to 262. The ArcGis version 10.3 tool, used as an aid to obtain images to detect the types of degradation occurred and in which areas were most affected by anthropomization in 2010,2013, 2015 and 2017.
