Fascinating article on the use of Lidar in Southeast Asia.

From the feature:

An extensive lidar and aerial photography acquisition project has provided insight into the former Khmer Empire, the major power in Southeast Asia between the 9th and 15th centuries. The ruins of its capitals lie in Angkor, within present-day Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. Believed to have been the largest pre-industrial urban complex in the world, Angkor may have supported a population of up to one million people at its peak. Its most famous temple, Angkor Wat, is depicted on the Cambodian flag. Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992.
