Night time light may indicate that a region is well developed. The phenomena can DNB satellite imagery. The amount of reflected light can be attributed to many population activities and indicates the number of inhabitants in a region. Based on the purpose of this research is to analyze the dynamics of population growth in Java in 2000 and 2015 based on the brightness level of light at night. The method be seen from the sheer reflection of light at night that is received by the VIIRS-used is by a classification method of K-Means and a descriptive analysis. The results showed that as intensity level higher, the number of population is also higher. High-intensity categories generally occur in the provincial capital, and there are new cities that are developing and entering the high-intensity category as well.
