While surfing around, I noted some articles discussing events which have taken place within various regions of Europa and ex Bloc areas. One seemed to
offer several 'Other' examples of the uses of this imagery that may, or may not have located Ciudad Blanca.

Flying Lasers Reveal Buried Historical Structures
By Markus Becker
The Glauberg is a hot spot for archaeologists. For decades, researchers have been studying the hill in the central German state of Hesse, where people
settled some 7,000 years ago.
Over the millennia, the plateau was inhabited by Celts and Alemanni and, in the Middle Ages, people there built castles that reached for the sky.
Accordingly, researchers have found plenty of artifacts. In 1996, they made the sensational discovery of an almost perfectly preserved statue of a
Celtic warrior, which is now known as the Celtic Prince of Glauberg.
This is just an example of what has been "overlooked" due to conventional application of the Art of Archaeology and some of those which are vocal
opposition to the claims made earlier on this main subject.

The researchers were fairly stunned by what the remote-sensing technology turned up on the Glauberg. At first glance, they recognized around a
dozen potential burial mounds that they hadn't known about before. "We went and took a closer look at five of them," says Axel Posluschny. "They
were all burial mounds."
The Boyne Valley in Ireland, for example, contains three prehistoric monuments that are part of the Brú na Bóinne UNESCO World Heritage Site . A
team with the Irish research project "Discovery Programme" scanned the already heavily researched area with lasers, finding a number of small
mounds, possible burial tombs and Stone Age earthworks. The map was practically filled with points of potential archaeological interest.
Lidar technology has also allowed archaeologists to make surprising discoveries in more obscure locations. For example, in a forest near
Göppingen, in the southwestern German state of Baden-Württemberg, they have found an entire system of fortifications that by no means buried or
invisible at ground level. "The wall was 3- to 4-meters-high at some points," says Jörg Bofinger, an official from the state's Stuttgart-based
office of historical preservation. "No one had this construction on their radar. It was completely unknown." What's more, that was the case even
though the state has been systematically taking aerial images since the beginning of the 1980s. "It's unbelievable that something like this would
slip past us," Bofinger says.
I trust you see where this goes.
There is discussion of how this can be used and the manner in which those working areas, can gain better direction to finding actually something
specific, apposed to say, digging, and seeing what's there.
There was a link to some very interesting photos of fly over areas which have a slide bar, which when move to the right, shows vegetation as we can
view through "google" maps per se. Move the slide left, and the terrain is voided of all vegetation. Quite and interesting view is remaining.
You can view these at Hi-Tech Aerial Photos
and visit 7 or 8 various areas of investigation.
I couldn't figure out how to brings these examples here, so you need to visit the link to see it there.
Anyways, I hope to see what happens in regards to this venture in Honduras. I saw something the other week, which offered some Video (4 I think) on
this matter, but lost the link. I will look again soon to see if I can find it again.
