Landslide is a disaster which affected by a human and geographic physical condition. Commonly, landslide susceptibility mapping is created by semi-detailed data and direct landslide inventory mapping. It becomes less detailed information and needs more time for data inventory. Small format aerial photograph details remote sensing data for landslide inventory and producing landslide detail mapping. The paper proposes a small format aerial photograph for detailed landslide susceptibility mapping based on landslide inventory. The method for landslide susceptibility mapping is based on landslide detail data produced by interpretation SFAP. We use 2D manual interpretation SFAP to landslide inventory data. This research was conducted in the Bompon micro catchment, Magelang Regency, Central Java. We applied a detailed landslide section and type of landslide to determine the susceptibility landslide area, i.e, crown of landslide, zona depletion, zona accumulation, main body of and toe landslide. Each section of the landslide occurred in different surface morphology. The result shows the landslide susceptibility areas depend on the detailed landslide section. Crown, zona depletion, and the main body of landslide are the unstable zone. They have occurred in the surface morphology such as peak-interfluve, upper slope-shoulder, middle slope-transportation zone, and lower slope-translational zone. Simultaneously, zona accumulation and toe landslide are the stable zone and occurred in the surface morphology such as foot slope-depositional zone and colluvial plain. The accuracy value is 86%; it was done by extensive field check.
