    Little research has been done in Mexico on the dynamics of land use in rural areas.   Because of this we have developed a work methodology, which enables us to study changes and tendencies in land use and population growth.  Aerial photographs with a scale of 1:20000 taken in 1970, 1983, 1989, and 1995 were used to study land use in two communities in the Texcoco River Basin.  The variables analyzed were urban land use, agricultural land use, land used for livestock and land used for forestry.   This information was complemented by interviews with farmers.  The main land uses were found to have changed over time.  These uses also changed in scale.  The changes were determined by population growth, the quality of social services and the introduction of new technology.

    Keyworks: Population growth, urban use, agricultural use, livestock use and forests technology, degree of detail.
