Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The detailed and systematic guidelines and direction of development and urban planning are regulated in Regional Spatial Plan (RTRW) under the Law Number 24 of 1992 concerning Spatial Planning, defined that a structural form and pattern of spatial use, whether planned or not. Because the influence of population growth is relatively high and the level of urbanization is not controlled, eventually resulting in the conversion of land use to other uses. The identified problems occurred in the South Coast of Sampang Regency, namely the utilization transition that occurred in the mainland area around the coast, that related to economic interests which affected the availability of land. With these conditions, it is necessary to map and analyze the suitability of existing conditions with the plan documents. This study identified the suitability of 9 coastal land cover classes using the interpretation method in Pleiades satellite images, by digitizing on screen. From the analysis conducted, the dominating land cover class is rice field, which are 5147.656 Ha. The total suitability of land cover with RTRW is 77%, with the most suitable class being ponds, which is equal to 96.75%. Meanwhile, the most inappropriate class is farm class with an area of around 5.09%.
