The process of urban expansion has resulted in disorderly population clusters, which causes problems for the municipal administration. To mitigate this type of problem, one of the ways to reorganize the territory is in the concept of polycentrism. In this concept, there are two approaches toanalyze these problems and seek solutions to them, the functional and the morphological. Concerningthe morphological approach, this research work aimed the accomplishment of analyses involving income, demography, and relief, factors that may influence the structure of the urban form of Ipiabas district, a possible sub-center located in the municipality of Barra do Pira , Rio de Janeiro. To understand the urban form, the analyzes consisted of : interpolating the location of possible residences, representing the average income per capita and the demographic density, as well as modeling a surface showing slope classes. The results show that the characteristic of the urban form of the Ipiabas district is related to topography and that there is a predominance of population settlements between the slopes.
