CRESTA zones. CRESTA maps 2019 are now available.

CRESTA zones

The CRESTA map edition depicts worldwide zones of elevated natural disaster risks as determined by CRESTA (Catastrophe Risk Evaluating and Standardizing Target Accumulations). Created in collaboration with Munich Re and Swiss Re, CRESTA zones give users in the insurance and risk management industries a consistent, unified, and global basis for calculating, aggregating, and communicating risk information. As such, the zones are a widely accepted standard in industry.

Our CRESTA map edition contains the official HighRes and LowRes zones for every continent, and all zones are labelled with their official CRESTA ID.

The maps are based on geographic coordinates (WGS 84), provide comprehensive coverage, and feature layers that fit together seamlessly.
