<p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:justify"><span style="font-size:12.0pt">The inhabited environment is crucial to global challenges. Although the humanities enrich our understanding of how human beings adapt their environment, they are underrepresented
 in global development debates. As the availability of digital data and technology rapidly grows, the opportunities to directly relate humanities research to the social and environmental sciences improves. Notably, in tropical archaeology, Light Detection and
 Ranging (LiDAR) is causing a &#8216;revolution&#8217; by revealing huge swaths of urban landscapes. This new data source and the perspectives it affords, are changing the role and relevance of (historical) humanities knowledge in relation to global development.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:justify"><span style="font-size:12.0pt">The Digital Humanities (DH) and Geohumanities are emergent fields with increasing resources. They invite exploration of how to harness and nurture interdisciplinary and comparative
 contributions. By embracing new digital data sources, acquisition, and manipulation techniques, Digital Humanities have the potential to
<i>contextualise and inform </i>how current developmental practice is<i> shaping </i>
socio-cultural inhabitation of the landscape.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
