Abstract

The purpose of this study is to find suitable pond areas for salt ponds. Modeling in GIS,
site selection studies are appropriate for industrial salt farms. Geographic Information
System modeling can predict ponds that are appropriate and not appropriate for industrial
salt ponds. The model used in this study is the index model. In Suharyadi and Danoedoro
(2004) explained that index modeling involves the use of scores for each different category.
this model can be applied to GIS Vector or raster. Overlaying maps involves arithmetic
calculation processes, either amount, subtraction, multiplication or division. The index or
score possessed by the new mapping unit on the derived map illustrates the combined
conditions of various criteria used as the basis for decision making. The results of the
analysis found that the area that was very suitable for salt ponds reached 1716.58 ha or
81.97% of the area of ponds in Pangkep Regency. Areas that are not suitable for salt ponds
reach 377.48 ha or reach 18.03%. from pond area. . Fishponds suitable for industrial salt
farms are found in areas close to the coastline
