Abstract:Mangrove forests are one of the most important ecosystems. The existence of mangrove forests is declining in the last decades. Moreover, threats on mangrove forests are mainly occurred in the developing country, including Indonesia. Saleh Bay, with its potential coastal resources, is chosen as a case study area since the issue of mangrove forests conversion and contradicting authority between national and provincial level. The enactment of Geospatial Information Law and the cost-effective technique of remote sensing combined with GIS tools contribute to the policy making and implementation regarding to spatial object, especially natural resources management. The method used in this research is digital image classification and change detection using Landsat image data and spatial analysis (overlay and buffer analysis). Maximum likelihood used as the algorithm in supervised image classification. The classification accuracy derived from the process is 0.7068 with kappa statistic 0f 0.769. The assessment result shows that mangrove forests management more effective under the national level compared to provincial level.
