CRESTA Zones Map Data
for Turkey

CRESTA Zones map data for Turkey helps to analyse and present natural hazard risk, based on the system established by the world’s leading reinsurers. While peril-independent, CRESTA (Catastrophe Risk Evaluating and Standardising Target Accumulations) has established a uniform and global system to transfer, electronically, aggregated exposure data for accumulation risk control and modelling among insurers and reinsurers.

CRESTA Zones Map Data
for Turkey

CRESTA zones were originally developed as a joint project of the Swiss Reinsurance Company, the Gerling-Konzern Globale Reinsurance Company and the Munich Reinsurance Company. Europa Technologies was part of the original team who brought the standard into the digital mapping era and has maintained a CRESTA zone map data product longer than any other vendor.

Insurance professionals need accurate and reliable maps and databases. In today’s times of climate change, demand has increased for location intelligence to manage risks and reduce exposure. Our CRESTA Zones map data for Turkey offers insurers an important basis for aggregated risk assessment, exposure management and reinsurance negotiation & reporting.

The trans-continental Republic of Turkey, straddles south-eastern Europe and western Asia, the division being the Bosphorus, Sea of Marmara and the Dardenelles. It borders Greece, Bulgaria, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Iraq and Syria. Whilst the capital is Ankara, the largest city is Istanbul which holds the unique position as the only pan-continental city in the world.
Over the centuries, Turkey’s geographical position has given it strategic significance, as well as control over the entrance to the Black Sea. Turkey was the centre of the Ottoman Empire until the establishment of the secular republic in 1920s, by Kemal Ataturk.
Since 2018, Turkey has been a presidential republic, divided into 81 provinces. It operates on a multi-party system and is a secular state with no specific religion. It has undergone some upheaval since the 1920s, and progress towards democracy and economic development was often halted. The population as a whole is very heavily urbanised. One fifth of Turkey’s population is made up of Kurdish peoples.
Turkey’s economy and regional power is driven largely by industry and the service sector, although agriculture accounts for a significant portion of the labour force. Industry comprises areas such as the automotive, textiles, electronics and mining. Within the service sector, tourism has grown consistently over the years and Turkey is now in the top ten most-visited countries.
Turkish culture is very diverse and a true marrying of Greco-Roman, Islamic, Ottoman, Anatolian and Western influences. There are 18 UNESCO world heritage sites in Turkey. From painting and carpet weaving, through to music, literature, theatre and architecture, Turkey has made its mark on the world and continues to do so.
It is a member of the United Nations, NATO and is a candidate for membership of 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 Turkey, by continent or world-wide.
