The patterns of urban growth of Chillán city (Central Chile), the land use associated to each of them and the factors which guide the urban expansion process are identified. Changes in the built urban surface during a period of 57 years (from 1943 until 2000) were quantified. Between 1997 and 2000 were analyzed the changes of land use, population density and home socioeconomic conditions, utilizing aerial photographs, SIG (Arcview 3.2 and Arc-Info N.T) and Spatially Explicit Landscape Index. A regression analysis allowed to study the relation between urban growth and population growth
