Interactive Flash Map of Brazil with all States March 20th, 2008 by Timothy Loginov

Good news for AnyChart customers from Brazil – today we have published maps of all states of Brazil.

Interesting facts are that back in XVI century the current territory of Brazil was divided into Captaincies, which are a historical administrative divisions of the former Spanish and Portuguese colonial empires. Each one was governed by a captain general.

In the Portuguese Empire, captaincies (capitanias, in Portuguese) were the administrative divisions and hereditary fiefs of the Portuguese state in some of its colonies.

Portugal Empire leaders didn’t think a lot about regional divisions and in 1534 Hereditary Captaincies maps looked like straight stripes of variable height of land, divided parallel to the Equator from the coast to the Tordesilhas Line, created by King John III of Portugal in 1534. Nice map, isn’t it? But this didn’t last long, and in 1573 only Two Viceroyalties were formed:

Since that time many things have happened and Brazil administrative maps were changed several time. The last reform have happened in 1990.

You can look at that map and map of all states in the following interactive flash dashboard created with AnyChart Flash Chart and Map Technology:
