- Avalanche is a mass movement of soil or rock down a slope under the influence of gravity (Zhou et al. 2015). The topography of Batu City has a character that can trigger landslides. Landslide disaster that occurred in the region always cause material losses and casualties. This research aims to create a map of potential hazard landslide area, identifying types of landslide, making landslide susceptibility map. Mapping of landslide hazard areas is the first step in disaster risk reduction and it is essential to do. The products of this research are landslide research report incorporating maps and a journal article. The selected research methods, that are interpretation of Landsat 7 satellite imagery of 432 band primary data causes landslides, and analyzing the soil data, interpreting of maps, and scoring variables of landslides. The ArcView 3.2 software is used in the analysis of the map. The landslide variables evaluated are: 1) soil texture, 2) soil permeability and plasticity index, 3) bedding rock slope, 4) the degree of weathering, 5) muscular density and depth of weathering, 6) existence of spring/seepage, 7) slope, and 8) presence or absence of cutting slopes. The results showed Landsat 7 imagery of bands 432 scale 1: 11.000 - 1: 15.000 objects can be interpreted such as: 1) residential, open land, 2) irrigated rice, 3) lowland, 4) upland, 4) orchard, 5) landslide slope, 6) mixed forest, 7) pine forest and 8) agroforestry forest (Stumpf, Malet, and Delacourt 2017).
