This volume is an essential reference in the study of Classic Maya settlement patterns. Maps of four cardinally oriented strips, each extending 12 km from central Tikal, document the survey area. In addition to these major overall maps (at 1:5000), a number of 1:2000 maps cover the many relatively smaller sites. The accompanying text explains the strategy, procedures, and theoretical considerations of mapping systems.

University Museum Monograph, 48

Dennis E. Puleston (1940-1978) worked for the Tikal Project of the University of Pennsylvania Museum in the 1960s. He carried out extensive mapping work at this Maya site in Guatemala which contributed to a revised estimate of the city's population. He was also interested in Maya agriculture and subsistence practices.
