Abstract: Both environmental control and appropriate measurement results present basis for the quality protection of geospatial elements. Providing environmental monitoring activities and creating control network is the obligation of each state, whereas local communities provide observation and control of air quality, water quality, waste quality, soil quality, vegetation and land cover control, etc. This has been the reason for the analysis of vegetation of the municipality of Jagodina in Serbia. By processing satellite images, data on the sources of pollution and polluting materials of the vegetation have been discovered. These include spot (stationary), linear (mobile and stationary) and surface (stationary and mobile) sources. While processing satellite images by the Idrisi software, we have acquired results that indicate certain vegetation modifcations (images obtained through infrared spectral imaging). Results obtained through remote sensing indicate the necessity to defne adequate vegetation monitoring, to complete a register of pollutants, to set up information system and defne ways of data presentation in order to manage a single, complete register of environmental pollutants in the municipality of Jagodina.
