    About This Project

    Aerial LiDAR surveys have been popular tools for mapping ancient Maya settlements through the dense rainforest canopy. LiDAR mapping at El Pilar revealed several previously unknown large structures, but many smaller structures in low, swampy areas were invisible to this technique. This project will develop a program of field-checking LiDAR anomalies to clarify the patterns of small structures in seasonal swamps, where settlement models predict people would not live.
