Ngadas is one of agricultural landscape in Indonesia. As an agricultural landscape, Ngadas have spatial dynamics. Spatial dynamics can often be seen and sought through several things such as changes in physical characteristics and composition. However, in this study researchers will focus on landscape composition. After knowing the landscape composition along with the landscape metrics value (number of patch, patch density, landscape shape index), the important research question is whether the landscape composition has a relationship with the landscape metrics? It is important to know that the recommendations produced for land improvement and so on can adjust the actual conditions that occur. So, the purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between landscape composition and landscape metrics. Spatial analysis and patch analysis are used to analyze data. After that, data proceed with correlation analysis using SPSS. The results of correlation analysis show that there is no correlation between landscape composition and landscape metrics.
