On 31 October 2021 Reuters reported:
Aerial remote-sensing of a large region of Mexico has revealed hundreds of ancient Mesoamerican ceremonial centers, including a large one at an important site for the ancient Olmec culture that is known for its colossal stone heads.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of culture and science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
The remote-sensing method, called lidar, pinpointed 478 ceremonial centers in areas that were home to the ancient Olmec and Maya cultures dating to roughly 1100-400 BC, researchers said on Monday [25 October].
Lidar, short for Light Detection and Ranging, penetrates vegetation and pinpoints structures that otherwise might not be seen from the air or the ground.
... Many of the hundreds of ceremonial complexes identified in the study share common layouts like the one at San Lorenzo [which is located in Veracruz in the lowlands near the Gulf of Mexico]. Many appear to have been built with orientations aligned with the direction of sunrise on specific key ceremonial dates.
