Objective: to analyze the area distribution of cervical cancer screening. Methods: a cross-sectional study was carried out with 211 women, aged 38-69 years. The georeferencing technique was used to obtain geographic information, with coordinates of Global Positioning System. Results: of the 211 women, 93.8% (198) underwent an oncotic cytology examination. Of these, 74.2% (147) were examined at irregular intervals. 16 cases of human papillomavirus with cervical oncotic cytology reports with Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia I, II and III were georeferenced. Conclusion: the area distribution of cervical cancer screening allowed the identification of coverage above the recommendations of the Brazilian Ministry of Health. In addition, in relation to the intervals between the cervical oncology cytology tests, the majority demonstrated execution at inappropriate intervals.
