leader has literally shone a light on two entire civilizations that were previously unknown when compared with all the techniques of surveying ruins a team in west central mexico had taken two seasons to survey just two square kilometers however with later

leader which was originally a portmanteau for light and radar now stands for light imaging detection and ranging and it makes use of laser pulses to create a detailed ground map of a service below this is done by measuring the differences in wavelengths and return times of each light pulse to map out what the target area might look like this
