The Empordà region (northeastern of Catalonia) displays one of the most diversified andrich agrarian landscapes of Catalonia. The article is an example of joint use in affluent theagricultural analysis of two differentiated disciplines until the present time: geo-historyand remote sensing. On the one hand, geo-history has allowed analyzing the human trans-formations and their repercussions in the most significant crops of the plains of the Altand the Baix Empordà from century XVIII. Because of the similar geophysical structureand geo-historical evolution, for example with dryings of lagoons or the deflections of thefinal sections of the fluvial courses, the two plains have been dealt jointly. Of the otherhand, remote sensing through satellite images has allowed mapping the crops of year 2004with a high reliability thanks to the used method and the geo-historical analysis.
