Kuningan Regency is one of the districts in West Java Province with a high rate of landslide events, especially in the southern part where its hilly landscape is dominated with a steep slope. Due to its vulnerability because of cracked soil after the landslide events, landslide locations in Kuningan Regency might only be safe if surveyed using the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Therefore, in this study, DJI Phantom 4 Pro was flown to capture images of landslide locations with a 10 cm spatial resolution. Image processing was conducted to generate Orthophoto and Digital Surface Model (DSM) to give information about the direction and area of landslides. Two sub-districts where landslides occurred, namely Darma and Selajambe, were chosen for landslide mapping using UAV. Results show that in Darma Sub-district, the landslide area is approximately 7,026 m2, while in Selajambe Sub-district is around 8,699 m2. The study results are very useful to analyze the factors affecting landslide events such as slope.
