Urban spaces currently house a large part of human relations where economic, cultural and social activities are carried out and the concentration of large population masses in the same area. Which, in turn, are responsible for energy demand and raw material, resulting in the imbalance of the relationship between man and environment. For this reason, the growing number of studies on the urban climate, the relationship between man and the natural environment, is necessary to understand and solve the problems resulting from this interaction. This research was developed in the city of Catalão (GO), using a sensor with readings on an hourly basis and an automatic station, the data also obtained on an hourly basis. As a general objective, the research proposes to evaluate the climatic conditions in the neighborhoods Residencial Barka and Setor Universitário, using an automatic sensor and an automatic station. The sensor was planned and designed by Professor Dr. Tércio Alberto dos Santos Filho and his team from the Department of Computer Science at the Federal University of Goiás Regional Catalão, in partnership with Professor Dr. Rafael de Ávila Rodrigues. the opportunity to develop this dissertation. WTIM (Wireless Transducer Interface Module, were developed using the XBee PRO S2 radio transceiver module2 manufactured by Digi International) and NCAP (Network Capable Application Processor) to acquire the data, then the information is processed and finally sent to the command central that is installed at UFG / Regional Catalão called the Coordinator, where it is connected to the internet network, which is used to send the data to the site. The process of sending a message requesting the data is made by the Coordinator and the one who sends the information is the Microcontroller, which is installed at UFG-RC campus II. Such procedures are done via radio. The graphs presented data from the sensor on an hourly basis with values for both humidity and temperature, always higher compared to the graphs of the automatic station, moreover, they showed that between the neighborhoods there are differences in both relative air humidity and air temperature, in the days of the research the difference of the maximums between the two places was of 4ºC. In the University Sector the configuration of urban elements (houses, buildings, paving, etc.) is more dense than in Residencial Barka, in relation to land use and occupation.
