Abstract: This Smart and sustainable land use is the key to answering development challenges in the modern era. In the context of Merauke Regency, South Papua, rapid economic growth and significant environmental changes demand an integrated approach to managing land use. This research presents an innovative WebGIS-based model that combines geospatial information technology with land use analysis to provide sustainable solutions. Through the integration of spatial data, predictive analysis and stakeholder participation, this model enables stakeholders to explore alternative land use scenarios and evaluate their environmental, economic and societal impacts. The performance evaluation stage of the model shows its ability to accurately represent existing land use patterns. Validation with actual land use data confirms the ability of the model to reproduce the distribution of agricultural areas and protected forest areas. Furthermore, the evaluation of the environmental impact of the model results indicates that the model is capable of predicting the environmental impact of alternative land use scenarios. Consultation sessions with stakeholders proved the importance of their participation in the validation and adaptation of sustainable solutions. The results of this study indicate that WebGIS-based Smart Land Use model has great potential in assisting sustainable planning and decision-making in Merauke Regency. However, further validation and improvement of the model is needed to strengthen its accuracy and validity. This research provides valuable insights on the integration of geospatial information technology in sustainable development and provides guidance for the development of similar models in other regions.
