Mayan Archaeology and LiDAR – Follow Up

I think I have seen more press on this story over the past few weeks than any other in our industry. The use of LiDAR to penetrate the dense rain forest canopy, in this case Belize, has clearly demonstrated the power of the technology to the world of archaeology.

One of the more interesting versions of the story comes from Brian Handwerk at the National Geographic. The images and related information are worth a quick look.
