                         linked to the necessity of knowing spatially, which areas are more 
                         susceptible for the occurrence of natural hazards and extreme 
                         events and witch characteristics may increase the risk. The main 
                         objective of this work is to develop a methodology to calculate 
                         the vulnerability to extreme events, using spatial analysis 
                         techniques. The specific objectives include the creation of a 
                         database containing socioeconomics and infrastructure information 
                         at municipal level; the application of spatial analysis techniques 
                         to define the weights of the vulnerability to natural disasters 
                         factors; define the vulnerability factors and map the 
                         vulnerability to natural disasters. The geographic database 
                         containing information about the events and the socioeconomic data 
                         were processed in the software SPRING, which allows the 
                         integration of the information and the analysis of the existent 
                         relations between the different factors considered. These data 
                         were analyzed through the tool of support for taking decisions on 
                         the AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) technique, on for each 
                         indicator was ascribed a relative weight due its importance. For 
                         each analyzed events were generated three indexes, each one 
                         referent to a component of the vulnerability concept of Cardona 
                         (2001): physical fragility, socioeconomic fragility and lack of 
                         resilience. Reducing the vulnerability of populations to disaster 
                         is a crucial aspect of disaster management.",
