Google Earth is a free program from Google that allows you to explore satellite images showing the cities and landscapes of Angola and all of Africa in fantastic detail. It works on your desktop computer, tablet, or mobile phone. The images in many areas are detailed enough that you can see houses, vehicles and even people on a city street. Google Earth is free and easy-to-use.
Angola is one of nearly 200 countries illustrated on our Blue Ocean Laminated Map of the World. This map shows a combination of political and physical features. It includes country boundaries, major cities, major mountains in shaded relief, ocean depth in blue color gradient, along with many other features. This is a great map for students, schools, offices and anywhere that a nice map of the world is needed for education, display or decor.

Angola Natural Resources:
Angola's metal resources include iron ore, copper, gold and bauxite. Commercial deposits of petroleum, diamonds, phosphates, feldspar and uranium are also present.
Angola Natural Hazards:
The country of Angola has locally heavy rainfall, which causes periodic flooding on the plateau.
Angola Environmental Issues:
The country of Angola has deforestation of its tropical rain forest, in response to both international demand for tropical timber and the domestic use for fuel. This results in loss of biodiversity. The country's population pressure influences the overuse of pastures, and the subsequent soil erosion and desertification. The soil erosion contributes to water pollution, siltation of rivers and dams, and inadequate supplies of potable water.
