Sustainable development in Indonesia should take into account the ability of natural resources in every region to meet the growing needs of society. The balance between the availability of natural resources and resident needs can be seen from the analysis of ecological footprint. The scope of the area used in this paper is in Gerbangkertasusila East Java with a focus on the ecological footprint in the food sector. The Ecological Footprint is derived by tracking how much biologically productive area it takes to provide for all the competing demands of people. These demands include space for food growing, fiber production, timber regeneration, absorption of carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel burning, and accommodating built infrastructure. The analysis of ecological footprint is a complex calculation to be done because it includes a component of demand and supply in various products in each land use. The development of digital data provision on sustainable development information especially the ecological footprint of the region is required to be more open and understandable. The ecological footprint calculator application is presented to provide calculation information on the conditions of surplus or ecological deficits of a region. The ecological footprint calculator application is used to figure out the balance of the supply side and the demand side of the environment of a region easier based on the android system.
