A settlement is an important requirement for humans. Increasing the number of residents has encouraged additional needs for residential land while the amount of land has not increased. It is necessary to analyze the suitability of residential land to create decent and safe settlements from disasters. This study analyzes the suitability of residential land in the West Palu District based on the criteria of terrain slope, distance to the road network, the distance of educational facilities, the distance of health facilities, distance of trade facilities, and disaster vulnerability. The results of this study obtained a percentage of the area for unsuitability class 28.84%, marginally suitable 18.44%, suitable 34.93%, and more suitable 17.79%.
Key words: settlement / spatial analysis / land suitability
