This paper highlights the essential aspects regarding the dynamics of certain components of the geographical landscape (agricultural use, industrial use, town site), which has increased greatly, especially after 2000. There have been extensions of built surfaces especially for the western and eastern sectors of Sibiu site, designed for industrial or service area, at the expense of the agricultural use. These changes have been revealed by analyzing cartographic documents and satellite images for various areas within Sibiu and the surrounding areas, at scales large enough to emphasize certain details, being made in different time periods. The study focused on processing and comparing maps and satellite images for the same areas, captured in different moments, in order to identify similarities and differences, and to show the evolution of the town site (especially of the industrial and service constructions) and the evolution of the agricultural use.
