The South of Pulau Laut is an area in the which is included in the Coral Triangle and Aquatic Conservation Areas. The purpose of this study was to map changes in the extent of coral reefs based on the class of substrate categories and objects on exposure to coral reefs in the southern waters of Sea Island within 6 years from 2011- 2017 using SPOT 7 satellite imagery in 2017 and AVNIR ALOS-2 in 2011. Using the method of Lyzenga Dept Index for basic invariant detection of waters. Based on the results of substrate-based classification using both satellite images overlaye, there has been a decline for the coral category as much as -19.21 ha, seagrass and algae as much as -3.57 ha. On the Contrary, the category of open substrate has Increased by 22.77 ha. Object-based classification results using the Object Based Image Analysis (OBIA) method have a reduction in area for the hard coral category (HC) of -1.66 ha, hard sand mixed with sand (HC S) of -15.99 ha, dead coral overgrown with algae and sand (DCA S) of -0.39 ha, algae and seagrass (FS) covering an area of -1.65 ha, sand-mixed coral fragments (RS) of 4:45 ha. On the other hand, there was an increase of in the area.
