National Agency for Disaster Management (BNPB) noted since early 2017 to December 4th, 2017 recorded as many as 577 incidents of landslides throughout Indonesia. Based on Indonesia Disaster Information Data (DIBI) within 2017 until now in Wonosobo District there are 9 landslide events and one of them is in Wadaslintang Sub-District where causing fatalities and material loss. Many factors can cause landslides such as rainfall, slope, geological soil type and vegetation density, which is slopes are a major factor in some landslide disaster cases. Therefore, to anticipate the loss of both casualties and material losses more in Wonosobo Regency, it is necessary to conduct a study in order to obtain landslide potential areas. The model applied to determine landslide potential areas is the SMORPH model approach by implementing slope morphology and angle/gradient of the slopes using Geographic Information System (GIS). From the results of data processing found that the area of landslide potential with the highest grade in Wonosobo district of 17% area, and for sub-district and the sub-district with the highest potential landslide is Wadaslintang with the percentage of 13.85% area. Landslides can affect a variety of land uses, and the most widely affected is a plantation with 87,07 Km2
