Remote Sensing is a reliable and efficient data acquisition techniques. This technique is widely used for land image processing. This technique has many advantages, especially in terms of cost and time. In this study, the classification between dry and irrigated land from irrigation canals is presented. Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Normalized Difference Moisture Index (NDMI), and Land Surface Temperature (LST) values obtained from satellite imagery data are used in this process. It is expected that through this method, the distribution and control of irrigation water can optimize existing agricultural potential. Ground Check (GC) is used for validation process. The results showed that the error rate based on the moon was not so large, i.e., 18%. The highest errors occur in February and March. This happens because those months are the rainy season, so the measured temperature is mostly the temperature above the cloud layer. On the other hand, the lowest error occurs in November. Also, it can be seen that this method can function optimally when detecting residential areas or highways.
