Random information on the term “Globe”:
Eartha is the world’s largest rotating and revolving globe, located within the headquarters of the DeLorme mapping corporation in Yarmouth, Maine. The globe weighs approximately 5,600 pounds (2,500 kg), and has a diameter of over 41 feet (12.5 m).
The globe was built with a scale of 1:1,000,000, on which one inch represents sixteen miles. As with most globes, it’s mounted at a 23.5 degree angle, the same axial tilt as the Earth itself; thus the equator is diagonal to the floor. It uses a cantilever mount with two motors, and simulates one day’s revolution and rotation every 18 minutes, though it is possible for the motors to fully rotate the globe in as little as one minute.
The globe was completed on July 23, 1998, after two years of construction and planning, and it uses a composite database built from satellite imagery, shaded relief, colored bathymetry, and information about road networks and urban areas. The database used to generate the surface images was approximately 140 gigabytes.
