This research aims to find out the development of settlements that occur over the next 20 years. Monitoring the development of settlements is carried out by remote sensing methods using Landsat 7 ETM+ imagery and Landsat 8 OLI imagery. Landsat 7 ETM+ used in 2000, and Landsat 8 OLI used in 2019. The algorithm is used to identify settlement development using the Normalized Dryness Built-up Index (NDBI). This algorithm uses two bands, such as Near-infrared and shortwave infrared, to calculate. The results showed that the growth of settlements occurred very significant because, in 2000, the number of settlements amounted to 628.2 hectares and in 2019 amounted to 1891.8 hectares. The increase in settlements occurred throughout the region in the Buleleng sub-district. Therefore, it can be concluded that NDBI can be used to monitor the development of settlements and the increase in settlements occurring as much as 28 % over 20 years.
