This paper focuses on the corresponding type of land use to different stages and state of industrialization and urbanization respectively and the regularity between them. Firstly, the data of land use in the Zhujiang River Delta from 1990 to 2000 are processed. Secondly, we get the composite coefficient of land use in the Delta. According to the value of Lc, we put the land use into 4 types. Thirdly, we try to determine the types of land use using the coupling coefficients of the output value of second industry and tertiary industry to GDP and the urbanization with land use respectively (LIc & LUc). And we can see that the two coupling coefficients and land use composite coefficient show a strong consistency through a comparison, i.e., when LIc < 0.10, the land use belongs to the steady type; when 0.10 < LIc < 1.00, the land use belongs to the comparatively steady type; when 1.00 < LIc < 10.0, the land use mainly belongs to the slow change type and drastic change type; when LIc > 10.0, the land use often belongs to the drastic change type and slow change type. And when LUc < 0.01, the land use is of steady type; when 0.01 < LUc < 0.30, the land use is of the comparatively steady type, when 0.30 < LUc < 1.00, of the slow change type and drastic change type; and when LUc >1.00, the land use is mainly the drastic change type and slow change type.
