Barito Delta morphodynamic had contradictive role with its potency and problem. Potency in Barito Delta may support the development of Banjarmasin City, but development of Barito Delta may decrease the capacity of transportation in Barito River. Multitemporal topographic map and Landsat satellite image during the period 1862-2008 were used to analyze the long-term delta morphodynamic. The analysis consisted of delta growth, yearly growth, growth orientation, delta shape, and shoreline changes. The research showed that the Barito Delta had developed during the period 1862-2008. Barito Delta had developed to south orientation. The growth of Barito Delta during the period 1862-1946 was 27.82 km2 or 0.33 km2 /year. However, during the period 1946-1997, Barito Delta growth was 175.82 km2 or 3.45 km2/year. Area of Barito Delta decreased during the period 1997-2004. The reduction of Barito Delta area was 4.73 km2 or 0.67 km2 /year. Area of Barito Delta in years 2004-2008 increased about 3.38 km2 or 0.84 km2 /year. Shoreline during the period 1862-2008 had changed. Accretion occurred in Kuala Lupak River during the period 1862-1997, but erosion occurred during the period 1997-2004. The delta morphodynamics were influenced by human activities in watershed and delta such as landuse change and land degradation. Key words: Morphodynamic, Barito Delta, topography map, Landsat satellite image.
