This is a very short list of recent, available articles on the internet on the use of LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) in the field of archeology in both remote and urban areas. LIDAR mapping is relatively recent and allows scientists and mapping professionals to examine both natural and man-made environments with accuracy, precision, and flexibility and has already made significant discoveries in the jungles of central America and Cambodia, on the plains of Stonehenge and has made possible high-resolution models of Renaissance palaces in Florence.
