Bringing the Maya‘s back to Life
Summer vacation is made up of multiple activities. It can include a trip to the movies, a visit to a foreign land, swimming, biking, or hiking. Technology has been used one way or another to enhance your fun or learn more about our interactions with the earth and environment.
A popular vacation destination like the Maya civilization site, was once not discovered and a lot was unknown before the introduction of modern day technology. These are now places we can enjoy and explore more, for example, with the help of LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology as it reveals hidden places through dense vegetation.
With our continuation in advancing new technology and our ability to analyze data using smart tools, this aids us in making decisions for the future. In addition, our new ways of looking at the world through the eyes of technology are helping us to continue to improve current daily activities and entertainment. It makes you wonder what disruptive technology will be used thousands of years from now, like we did with the Maya civilization up till now.
We owe it to our communities to take this knowledge and pay it forward so that others can continue to learn and appreciate our modern-day technologies. We can harness it and use it to our advantage for future generations to come.Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
