Madura Island is well known as a salt island. There is a lot of salt field there. The latest salt field map was taken in 2012 by the Marine and fisheries ministry. Updating the image of the salt field is essential to get updated information about the real condition there. Therefore, it is necessary to capture the updated condition by mapping the salt field from the air using a Drone. This paper aims to develop a method and a framework for mapping salt fields using a Drone for Geographic Information System (GIS) application. Therefore, the salt field was mapped from the air. We experimented in the salt field of Polagan village Sampang, Polagan village Pamekasan, and Talango Sumenep. This research contributes by providing a novel method of mapping salt fields using a Drone. The novelty of this research is the method is developed based on the case study on Madura island, well known as the salt island.
