    Because there are no studies that analyze the dynamics of land use in the rural areas of Mexico, this research created a methodol­ogy to determine the trends and forecasts in land use and population growth.  Two communities located m the Texcoco River Basin were used as case studies. The variables analyzed were urban land use, agricultural  land use, land used for grazing  livestock and forest land.  Aerial photographs with a scale of 1:20000 taken in 1970, 1983, 1989, and 1995 were used.  This data was used in con­ junction with interviews with farmers.  The main land uses were found to have changed in scale over time. Influenced by population growth and introduction of new technology.

    Keyworks: Population growth, urban use, agricultural land use, land use for livestock and forestry, technology, degree of detail.
