Rapid urbanization and industrialization in Jabotabek has caused serious environmental problem, including land use conversion. Therefore, it’s necessary to determine the land use change pattern in Jabotabek by using GIS and Remote Sensing techniques. The advantage of remote sensing data are repetitive, real time, and in digital format allowing for quantitative approach. Our main objective was to study temporal change and spatial distribution of land cover, by comparing the data from landsat of Jabotabek in 1992 and 2001. We carried out the study in 3 stages by using GIS and remote sensing techniques. Landsat imagery showed that the changing pattern of land use is dominantly by encroachment of agricultural land to urban uses. Analysis by using logit model showed that the dominant factor, which influenced land use change to urban, paddy and agriculture is slope, following by distance and population growth in Jabotabek areas.
