 Lost Maya city of Ciudad Blanca found?


The lost city of Ciudad Blanca or other hidden Maya sites in Honduras may have been located by LIDAR technology. Seeing through the jungle canopy was difficult before. The new LIDAR techniques used laser pulses to filter out vegetation and provide an earth image below the foliage.

(My note; Hernan Cortes began looking for this city in 1526, because he believed it to be a legendary city of gold.  Several sightings of the city have been claimed over the centuries, but none have ever been verified.)

Science Daily has the report here;
