      Town is centre of activities where resident, infrastructure network and human being activity take place with all economic interaction, culture and social. Palembang is one of the town among some other metropolis in Indonesia having area land structure “low land”. The mentioned marked with regional geomorphology structure of formed river to the some river branch from one great river which passing town, with height in area of around river less than 5 m above means sea level (msl). With this condition, existing river will is always influenced by sea water level, where high water moment, sea water tide influence will influence exit current drainage coming from its upstream region (town). So that top rain moment, water which do not be accommodated in river, because water level lest than upstream, will abundance in vinicity region, so that suffuse in low area or which is ordinary to be referred is by floods plain. At some case, the core important at some town growth which do not in control, like inconsistency of settlement of area with environment, one of the problem to arise is degradation of quality of itself town environment. One aspect do not control growth of town is expressed with disregarding of problem of land use planning at region that having high natural and ecological value. Many method have been conducted to overcome the problem or floods that happened in urban area, what in general can be classified to becomes: approach of non structural and structural approach (Correira et all, 1999). In that sense, the aim of this research is to develop a spatial approach that could incorporate that environmental perspective and the environment services inside the planning process, through the application GIS tools (knowledge-base modeling). For that purpose, concepts and theories proposed in the framework of Sustainable Development ( Landscape Ecology, Ecosystem Analysis, Land unit Concept, Ecosystem Services and Urban Ecosystems and their interactions in spatial term was developed. If monitoring system change of land use and capacities of analyse systems can be created by exploiting GIS technique, or Geographic Information System, hence condition of river ecosystem service to its environment can be monitored.
