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.
