Landslide Susceptibility Map of Honduras - Not published - Map saved in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. File size (9.77MB).

You will need Adobe Reader to view this file. Download a copy of the latest version of Adobe Reader for free.

This map is product of a compilation of datasets including 90m-resolution SRTM DEM of Central America, up-to-date information on the predicted path of Hurricane Felix, as well as, detailed landslide susceptibility data provided by the Preliminary digital geologic map database of Honduras.

As a result, this dataset provides detailed information on the areas within Honduras that are most susceptible to landslides due to the severe amounts of rainfall associated with hurricanes. This scientific data can be incorporated into decision making processes to support relief and recovery efforts associated with natural disasters like Hurricane Felix.
