Google Earth is a free program from Google that allows you to explore satellite images showing the cities and landscapes of Honduras and all of Central America 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.
Honduras 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.

Honduras Natural Resources:
Honduras has a variety of metallic resources which include antimony, copper, iron ore, lead, gold, silver and zinc. Fuel resources for the country are coal and hydropower. Other resources include timber and fish.
Honduras Natural Hazards:
Honduras is subject to frequent, but generally mild, earthquakes. The country is extremely susceptible to damaging hurricanes and floods along the Caribbean coast.
Honduras Environmental Issues:
Honduras has numerous environmental issues. One issue is an expanding urban population. Deforestation is another issue, which results from logging and the clearing of land for agricultural purposes. There is an increased rate of land degradation and soil erosion due to uncontrolled development and the improper land use practices (for example, farming of marginal lands). In addition, the country's mining activities are polluting Lago de Yojoa (the country's largest source of fresh water), as well as several rivers and streams, with heavy metals.
