The number of villages in Indonesia currently is 83,436 villages, which will continue to increase each year. For instance, 49 years ago in 1969/1970, the number of villages was 44,478. The administrative boundaries of a village are very important to affirm and to stipulate legal aspects in the management of resources. Considering the large number of villages, it is necessary to accelerate the affirmation of village boundaries [Riyadi, 2018]. The study was conducted using a qualitative descriptive approach, by analyzing the contribution of geospatial information in supporting the delineation acceleration of village boundaries carried out by Geospatial Information Agency (BIG) during the period from 2013 to 2019 throughout Indonesia. High resolution orthorectified satellite imagery was used by implementing the cartometric method as mandated in the Minister of Home Affairs Regulation (Permendagri) No. 45 of 2016 concerning Determination and Affirmation of Village Boundaries. This method has been proven to accelerate the processes of establishing village boundaries. It is estimated that the number of villages in the period 2013-2019 will reach 76,196 villages or approximately 91,26 % of a total 83,436 villages. Settlement of village boundaries is part of the work plan of One Map policy contained in Presidential Regulation No. 9 of 2016 which is a catalyst for speeding up administrative boundaries including village boundaries.
