Situated on the Iberian peninsula in southwestern Europe, and bordering Spain, the Republic of Portugal is one of the oldest European states. It is made up of mainland Portugal and the autonomous Atlantic territories of the Azores and Madeira. The capital city is Lisbon.
Run as a dictatorship for over half of the twentieth century, Portugal is now a semi-presidential republic, with 308 municipalities, plus Madeira and the Azores. Portugal was one of the great exploring maritime nations. As a result, there are over 250 million Portuguese speakers around the world.
Portugal is a highly developed country. Business services have overtaken traditional industries such as textiles, footwear, cork and wood, to become the drivers of the Portuguese economy. Tourism is an important sector and Portugal has become one of the top twenty most visited countries.
It has a declining birth-rate and an ageing population. Reflecting the country’s history, Portugal’s strong cultural heritage is peppered with influences from other continents and civilizations. It is strong in the arts, football and of course, renowned for wine.
On the world stage it is a member of the United Nations and the European Union.

Applications can be further enhanced by adding a variety of natural hazard data sets such as earthquake locations, storm paths, meteorological, geological and insurance-specific statistical data.

Global CRESTA Plus can be licensed just for Portugal, by continent or world-wide.
