Saw that. I love the way so much info is stored in the universe, available if only we access and decode it.

And if only we could protect it before looters get to it first.

That is just so very cool. (I might have to watch that show, too.)

I read the first part of the Washington Post article on this and it was interesting but I was disappointed that the Honduran expedition to the "White City" wasn't mentioned because, according The Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston, the first use of LIDAR to detect possible archeological sites in the jungle happened in Honduras. Have I missed something?

Regardless, using LIDAR to help archeology seems to be fantastic tool.
