The observation focused on PT Arutmin Indonesia's NPLCT RPT area of 98 hectares. These observations are viewed with the help of remote sensing technology and geographic information systems (GIS). This observation aims to analyze changes in greenness levels that occur from 2019 to 2023 using the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) method and the materials used sentinel-2A imagery. The goal is to evaluate changes in greenness levels and their interpolation from 2019 to 2023. An area of 98 hectares was monitored using sentinel-2A satellite imagery with a pixel sharpness of 10 meters x 10 meters. The results show sentinel imagery from 2019 to 2020, 38.41 ha experienced reforestation, 1.65 ha experienced deforestation and 58.14 ha did not change. Sentinel-2A image from 2020 to 2021, 79.09 ha experienced reforestation, 1.35 ha experienced deforestation and 17.68 ha did not change. Sentinel-2A image from 2021 to 2022, 1.08 ha experienced reforestation, 79.48 ha experienced deforestation and 17.68 ha did not change. Sentinel-2A imagery from 2022 to 2023, 0.47 ha experienced reforestation, 40.65 ha experienced deforestation and 57.17 ha did not change. The sentinel-2A image changes from 2019 to 2023, 2.27 ha reforested, 20.35 ha deforested and 75.64. These observations highlight the importance of remote sensing technology and geographic information systems (GIS) in monitoring and analyzing land cover change to support conservation, rehabilitation and natural resource management policies in Kotabaru District, South Kalimantan.
