Policy analysis, geospatial plantation area and assessment (valuation) of the economic value of plantations in East Kalimantan require special attention for the purpose of providing certainty that the policy for establishing plantation areas in the Regional Spatial Plan has taken into account soil conservation. Based on the East Kalimantan Provincial Spatial Plan, it has been determined that the plantation area is around 3.2 million ha, however, the utilization of the provided land is not optimal, there are several plantation licenses that are not yet operational, this can affect the economic value of the plantation area. The economic value of these plantations will contribute to regional economic development. An indication that it is not optimal is that there is land that does not have the ability to be cultivated and or is not suitable for plantation business; therefore it is necessary to analyze the geospatial policy of the plantation area to determine the capability of the land that can be cultivated. In addition, it is necessary to analyze the economic value of the area to find out the contribution of the plantation sector to regional economic development. The results of the description analysis show that there are still about 23 percent of the plantation area that is not suitable for plantation crops because it has limiting factors for land use that cannot be improved. The results of the analysis of the potential economic value of plantation areas in East Kalimantan Province amounted to 235 trillion rupiah.
