This research focuses on disaster mitigation of Sidoarjo Mudflow since 2005 until 2018. This research aims to analyze and mapping mudflow pattern since 2005. It uses Geographical Information System or spatial information as tools to describe and analyze major environmental problems. It examines data Landsat 7 and 8 Imagery between 2005 and 2018 for calculating the area of impact from Sidoarjo Mudflow. It takes further analysis from research which using Landsat Imagery to calculating sedimentation in Mahakam Rivers. Moreover, addressing the environmental risk at Madura Gulf from Sidoarjo Mudflow in the last few years, this research analyzes the impact of mudflow distribution pattern in and social adaptation in retrospective view. This research found that sedimentation fom the mudflow is making more difficult to calculate the impact and composing mitigation plans. To address the environmental risk from the mudflow disaster, explores spatial information regarding changes from Sidoarjo Mudflow to social adaptation, such as adaptation to looking for fishing area and fishing intensity.
