What is now dense forest, is now revealed to have been temples, roads, canals and even Mayan fortresses. Lidar scanning by aircraft just 2000 feet above the forest reveals a hidden civilisation of high density for it's time.

This is a new study published in Science. It's being reported all over.

Ancient lowland Maya complexity as revealed by airborne laser scanning of northern Guatemala


Scholars first applied modern lidar technology to the lowland Maya area in 2009, focusing analysis on the immediate surroundings of individual sites. The PLI covers twice the area of any previous survey and involves a consortium of scholars conducting collaborative and complementary analyses of the entire survey region.
