Abstract

Critical land is a land that is no longer functioning as a regulator of water, agricultural production elements and environmental protection elements. Owing to the fact that the analysis of critical land is usually carried out manually, the probability of errors in processing (human error) is very high. This research utilizes the Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to analyze critical area in protected forest area of Musi Watershed. The application of GIS technology, enables the analysis of critical land according to standard of critical land criteria. The results show that the very critical level area in protected forest area of Musi Watershed is 1.7%. The dominant level is in critical potential area (53.34%). Keywords: Critical Land, Watershed, Remote Sensing, GIS, Weighting Method, SPO-4.
