The purpose of this study was to use the MODIS products in order to analyze and correlateLand Classification (MCD12Q1), Land Surface Temperatures (MOD11A2) and NormalizedDifference Vegetation Indices (MOD13A2) in the City of Madrid and its surrounding areas, in order to validate the concept that remote sensing is a useful tool to develop guidelines on urban and territorial planning. Results show that the 42% of the area that surrounds Madrid has been designated for croplands while the rest of the area has been designated for woody savannas (19.84%), open shrublands (15.50%) and grasslands (7.77%). At the same time, results present the high correlation that all of the MODIS products have, based on the seasonal changes of the Land Surface Temperatures and the Normalized Difference Vegetation Indices.
