Global geo-data specialist Europa Technologies has announced a major upgrade to its digital CRESTA zone product for the insurance and reinsurance sectors.

Global CRESTA Plus is a comprehensive implementation of the latest CRESTA specification and is available in high and low resolution versions. The high resolution version contains more granular zones which are typically used in catastrophe modelling applications. CRESTA (Catastrophe Risk Evaluating and Standardising Target Accumulations) is an industry standard that helps brokers and reinsurers assess and present risk based on a zoning system established by some of the world's leading reinsurers. Europa Technologies has developed and maintained a CRESTA zone data product for over sixteen years - longer than any other provider. Global

CRESTA Plus is based on Europa Technologies’ renowned global data, as featured in Google Earth and Google Maps. Additionally, the product utilises postal and administrative boundary data from Michael Bauer International (MBI). Global CRESTA Plus includes generous reference map layers including a places gazetteer of over 930,000 locations. The gazetteer includes support for 19 languages making it ideal for international organisations that require extensive support for localisation. Global CRESTA Plus is cost-effective with attractive and flexible licence terms. Company director and founder Warren Vick said: "Global CRESTA Plus continues to be an important element of our world data portfolio. I am delighted that this latest version continues to offer tremendous quality and value to the insurance sector."
