What prior civilizations influenced the development of the maya and Aztec?

In what ways were these civilizations an influence ?

Answer

I can name one such civilization : the Olmecs, they were the first known Mesoamerican civilization and they influenced the later civilizations in many ways.
First, Olmec Art is still visible in the art of Mayas and they influenced their art.
For example, the Olmecs used Jade, just like the later civilisations.
then, Epi-Olmec script bears some resemblance to the Maya script, so Mayas likely adopted and developed the Olmec script.
