A Guide to Understanding Your Globe

 

Full-swing Meridian

Antique style brass-plated die-cast meridian (ring supporting the globe) allows the ball to be turned 360° for easy access to thousands of points of interest from any possible angle. The fully up-to-date globe revolves within the meridian ring (East/West), and the meridian swings within the stand (North/South).

Raised ReliefRaisedrelief(1).gif (1486 bytes)

To better emphasize the mountainous areas of the world - there are ‘bumps’ on some areas of the globe. They are called raised relief.  They are there so that you can ‘SEE & FEEL’ the mountains - although their actual height on the globe does not have any relationship to the true relative heights of the mountain ranges.
