New Frontiers in Mapping the Maya Tropics

Neotropical Digital Archaeology, Global Development and Urban Ecosystems


by Kathryn Reese-Taylor & Scott Hudson

Archaeologists using airborne LiDAR technology have started to reveal vast urban landscapes underneath the tropical forests of Central America.  We can now consider how mapping these inhabitation patterns can  help urban development today.   Kathryn Reese-Taylor (Calgary) and Scott Hutson (Kentucky) are experts in the mapping of tropical Maya cities.  Introduced by Eastern ARC Fellow Benjamin Vis (Kent) we will reflect on the archaeological opportunities this affords and the challenges it poses.
