—The objective of the research was to find the suitable habitat for Whreathed Hornbill (Acerosundulatus
) using GIS in Mount Ungaran. The research was carried out in five stations: Banyuwindu, Gajah Mungkur, Watu Ondo, Gunung Gentong, and Gajah Mungkur. The method of data collection consisted of spatial data and tabular data. The determining of habitat and the nest distribution were carried out using GPS (Global Positioning System) andprocessing the data was using Arc Gis and Erdas Imagine 9.1 software.The results showed that very suitable area for bird habitat in Mount Ungaranwas 2436.73 ha (13%), whereas 985.11 ha (51%) was considered as suitable area and 7171.37 ha or 36% as unsuitable area. The results validate the suitability of habitat for Whreathed Hornbill is 75%. The accuracy value of 75% indicates that the suitability map model for Whreathed Hornbill habitat is relatively good and is acceptable.
