Regions & Boundaries map data for Honduras

Regions & Boundaries map data provides a geographic breakdown of Honduras for visualisation and analysis purposes. Using GIS or mapping software, colours can be assigned to these regions to form a thematic map, also known as a choropleth map. Thematic maps are visually powerful and a simple but effective way to communicate a variable (e.g. sales figures) across a geographic area. Regions can be political/administrative, postcode or small areas often connected with a census. With seamless transitions across borders with neighbouring countries, this data product is ideal for international projects.

Further enabling geographic analysis, Regions & Boundaries for Honduras can also be supplemented with statistics such as socio-demographics, purchasing power and consumer profiles. This product is available in a number of popular GIS data formats.

Avg Population / Region
The Republic of Honduras is situated in Central America. It shares borders with Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua, and has coastline along the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. The capital city is Tegucigalpa.
Home to Mayan populations before Spanish colonisation in 1500s, Honduras gained independence from Spain in 1821. It participated in several failed attempts at Central American unity and has been a republic although years of political instability, corruption and military rule have inhibited its development. In the late 1800s, a number of American corporations invested in Honduran land. This led to a great deal of US corporate control over the country’s banana-based economy. The term “banana republic” was coined to refer to Honduras, and at one point its entire economy revolved around the fruit. Unrest, civil war and territory war with Nicaragua and El Salvador peppered the twentieth century. Honduras was dominated by the military until the mid-1980s, when a theoretical transition to free and fair elections took place. Unfortunately political instability does prevail. It is run as a presidential democratic representative republic and divided into eighteen departments.
One of the most unstable countries in Central America, Honduras is also one of the least developed. Its economy is heavily agricultural and it relies on production of coffee, fruit - especially bananas, and shrimp. Mining is important and its textiles industry is growing. Geographically susceptible to natural disasters, its agricultural-based economy has suffered some devastating losses, particularly with Hurricane Mitch in 1998, which took several years to recover from.
One of the poorest and most violent countries in Latin America, around two-thirds of the population live below the poverty line. The disparity between northern wealth and southern poverty is marked. Urbanisation is slowly increasing and a little over half of the people live in or around cities. Honduras has a population with a strong Amerindian/Spanish heritage. The main language is Spanish.
Honduras has a strong culture of music and art and soccer is the main sport.
Honduras is a member of the United Nations.
