Unfortunately SOE's API does not yet give us this information.  But if they do in the near future we will definitely add it in.

FWIW: You might be able to calculate this. I believe: It's done as a percentage of the map, if your ownership goes above the 80%(Guessing, Can't remember from ingame threshold) you own the continent. If you're ownership goes below 20% you lose the continent. 


I dont know if you're tracking in a db or just pulling live stats

It's a combination of pulling live stats into the db and calculating everything from there.  I have considered calculating this in the past but I wasn't sure how accurate it would be.  Is it 80/20% now?  It used to be 75/25% not long ago.  Did SOE change this?


Also, sometimes on the map, a continent will have no ownership.  Does this mean that the previous owner's territory control dropped below 20 (25?) % but that the other two factions were still not over 80 (75?)%?


A few months ago, before they added in the 80/20 (75/25) thing into the game, a faction had to control 100% of the map in order to own the map, but sometimes, certain continents were still shown as having no owner.  So I'm not sure how a faction could loose ownership back then when another faction did not conquer the map 100%.  It was questions like this as to why I never pursued trying to calculate this.  But maybe it's something I should reconsider...

It is in fact 75% to capture, and you lose it if you go below 15% of the continent (or someone else reaches 75%) ie you lose it if the two opposing factions get a total of 85% in which case the continent turns neutral

Okay that sounds right.  I should have no trouble calculating that then.  I need to watch the in-game percentages to make sure that territory ownership % does not include the 3 warpgate territories for each continent (the main warpgate territory and the two little territories) that are always controlled by each respective faction.

The game has changed where each continent only shows being owned by a faction if it is currently conquered and locked by that faction. While, that functionality has been added, I'm closing this ticket since it doesn't apply to the game anymore.
