Globe, Other Management

Globe:

The difference between a map and a globe is one of form. A map is any geographic image of the earth drawn to scale on a flat surface whereas a globe is a spherical representation of the earth's surface. It is a hollow ball of metal, bearing a world map on its surface and is mounted on an axle which permits its rotation. The term `globe' is synonymously used for the `World' or the earth. It is called in cartography as a scale model of the earth. The initial model of the globe was formed in Nuxemberg in Germany in 1492.
