Earth observation data cubes are multidimensional structures created from Analysis-Ready Data (ARD) of remote sensing images. This work presents the use of data cubes in the mapping of burnt area using the methodology of the product aq30m of the INPE’s Queimadas Program. Tests were conducted in two different areas and at different scales in the Cerrado biome. The methodology was adapted to use the data cubes and the technologies developed by the Brazil Data Cube (BDC) project in R language. Subsequently, the results were compared with the original aq30m data and the advantages of using data cubes in burned area mapping were verified, enabling future improvements.
