Abstract: Digital technology helps to visualize the natural potentiality of the landscapes that exist on the earthly surface. Indeed, information is more significant with fieldwork. The interpretation of the images through the application of the image segmentation function, available in the SPRING 5.5.5 software, granted the understanding of natural landscapes in the Pacoti River Watershed, precisely in the Baturité Residual Massif. Thus, geoprocessing may act as a mitigating tool in nature conservation since this tool reveals the diversity in nature and its uses.
