Abstract: Recently, a highway development is required as a liaison between regions to support the economic development of the regions. Even the availability of highways give positive impacts, it also has negative impacts, especially related to the changes of vegetated lands. This study aims to determine the change of vegetation coverage in Jagorawi corridor Jakarta-Bogor during 37 years, and to analyze landscape patterns in the corridor based on distance factor from Jakarta to Bogor. In this study, we used a long-series of Landsat images taken by Landsat 2 MSS (1978), Landsat 5 TM (1988, 1995, and 2005) and Landsat 8 OLI/TIRS (2015). Analysis of landscape metrics was conducted through patch analysis approach to determine the change of landscape patterns in the Jagorawi corridor Jakarta-Bogor. Several parameters of landscape metrics used are Number of Patches (NumP), Mean Patch Size (MPS), Mean Shape Index (MSI), and Edge Density (ED). These parameters can be used to provide information of structural elements of landscape, composition and spatial distribution in the corridor. The results indicated that vegetation coverage in the Jagorawi corridor Jakarta-Bogor decreased about 48% for 35 years. Moreover, NumP value increased and decreasing of MPS value as a means of higher fragmentation level occurs with patch size become smaller. Meanwhile, The increase in ED parameters indicates that vegetated land is damaged annually. MSI parameter shows a decrease in every year which means land degradation on vegetated land. This indicates that the declining value of MSI will have an impact on land degradation.
