Abstract : People have been clearing land since ancient times. Satellite images can now be used to show the spread of the pioneer front and distinguish between pseudo-natural land and cleared land. In Brazil, agricultural colonisation projects play an important role in land use. In Mato Grosso State, remote sensing reveals different agricultural colonisation projects. The aim is to illustrate new spatial forms by observing the spread of cleared land. The limits of cleared land are used as physical identifiers of human territorial occupation. Spatial analysis includes a typology of roads'structures and other basic spatial components that show the participation of each migrant in the advance of the pioneer front. Spatial analysis reveals several forms of spatial occupation.
