As the capital city of East Nusa Tenggara province, Kupang City is experiencing rapid development in terms of both physical and non physical development. The increase in the number of people both naturally and as migration effects from other regions outside the city contributes to the increased demand for the provision of residential areas. It is affected the turning/conversion of land from non-built to built land. Physically, Kupang City is a Kars area which legally is protected area with development that must be limited. However, on the other hand the provision of land for settlements should be continued in order to equilibrate the growing number of people. The provision of land for settlements should consider the aspects of land physical capability and land adjustment criteria so that the construction of settlements undertaken does not disturb the existing ecosystem of the environment. The current study is aimed to measure the extent of the development of the settlement land area within last 10 years and evaluate the adjustment of the existing settlement land based on physical land adjustment criteria. The change of the settlement area is known by utilizing the interpretation of landsite satellite imagery and the adjustment of existing settlement land which is analyzed using overlay method.
