Semarang is considered as a secondary city in a country like Indonesia. Beside its unique characteristics due to its location in northern coast of Central Java, it also faces increasing water demand. Semarang implements rain harvesting technology but has not yet achieved desired standard level. This study aims to identify community acceptance pattern of rain harvesting in settlement area through a combined method of landscape physiography units and urban observation of non-parametric statistical questionnaires. Both are supported by geographic information system. Variables measured were knowledge, perception, and attitude. Findings resulted in spatial distribution of rain harvesting pattern.
