Population growth and rapid development in Jakarta have caused a reduction in the amount of Green Open Space (GOS) in urban areas. Based on data in 2017, the public GOS managed by the Forestry Agency is only 4.65% and the private GOS can not be counted until now. Although the target of public GOS achievement is 20%, but the green plan is only 7,514.08 ha. The aim of this study is to analyze the extent and distribution of GOS and compare it with green plan. This study used the method of Geographic Information Systems to determine the extent and distribution by comparing the GOS area in year 2011 and 2018. The next step is reviewing the green plan zone according to Jakarta Spatial Planning 2030. Based on the results of this study, it can be concluded that the area of GOS in 2011 was 3,816.34 ha (5.84%) and it decreased in 2018 to 3,473.94 ha (5.31%). The distribution of GOS spreads in 5 administrative cities, with the largest area being in the East Jakarta. The result of the comparison of GOS in 2018 with the green plan shows that there is a lack of green areas of 4,040.13 ha.
