  The objective of this study is to assessment of land surface temperature of landuse in kalasin municipality with data from LANDSAT 8 OLI/TIRS in 2 periods, 2015 and 2019. The research methodology are as follows: 1) To analyze landuse in 4 categories, namely agricultural area, forest area, urban area, and water area using LANDSAT 8 OLI,  2) To analyze Land Surface Temperature using LANDSAT 8 OLI band 4 – 5, TIRS and split windows algorithm.  The results of land use classification in 2015 and 2019 found that Kalasin municipality has a total area of 16.96 km2, classified as agricultural area equal to 7.607 km2 and 5.583 km2, forest area equal to 0.873 km2 and 0.551 km2, urban area equal to 16.643 km2 and 18.349 km2, water area equal to 0.359 km2 and 0.354 km2. The results of land surface temperature analysis showed that in 2015 the average temperature was 33.49°C and in 2019 the average temperature was 35.36°C. In addition, from both periods, it was found land surface temperature of urban areas showed the highest average land surface temperature, next is forest area, agricultural area and water area.
