Abstract : A methodology is presented capable of suppling in a semi-automatic manner information regarding the location, shape, dimensions and absolute and relative surface temperatures in areas with geothermal anomalies. The data acquisition system used has been an aircraft borne M 2S Multispectral Scanner form Bendix, mounted on a CASA 212 aircraft. This sensor collects data in 11 wavelength bands including a thermal infrared one at wavelengths between 8 and 14 micrometers. The region selected as a test site has been the west half of the Lanzarote Island which possess interesting geothermal characteristics and of which there exist a large amount of data. The results obtained form the scanner data make it possible - the detection and study of surface anomalies and the elaboration - of a map of thermal anomalies.
