Abstract. Housing is a basic need that can enhance the quality of life. The government is committed towards ensuring access to quality and affordable housing to meet the needs of a growing population by matching demand and supply, promoting an efficient and sustainable housing industry, as well as providing efficient public utilities and services and a clean environment. Thus, it is imperative for the government and private sector, to work together in order to create a competitive and sustainable housing industry. One of the aspect need improve is the sustainability level of this affordable housing. The aim of this study is to enhance the model to measure the sustainability level of the affordable housing in Malaysia using spatial analysis. The spatial analysis used in this study are both GIS analysis and non-GIS analysis. The result of this study will be list of indicators to measure the sustainability level of affordable housing, and then, from the analysis, map of the sustainability indicators nearby the affordable housing can be produced.
