The LAND Globe 250x - Raised Relief Globe

Mountain heights are exaggerated by 250 times in this first-of-its-kind, extreme raised-relief globe.

A digital globe, so-called because it is created by laser beams hitting liquid plastic, under digital control of a computer that is following digital instructions that give a mathematically correct exaggeration for the plastic mountains.  The quantization of the plastic construction is visible as triangles, rectangles and trapezoids.

The 18 inch Land Globe 250x has raised relief for the mountains. The mountain heights are exaggerated by 250 times. At sea-level, the Land Globe 250x has a 15 inch diameter. Each globe uses a million triangles to make the shape of the surface. You can see the small triangles if you look closely at the photographs.

The globes are made from discrete layers of plastic that are laid down on top of each other using 200 layers per inch. The 18 inch globes use about 3600 layers.

The Land 250x Globe comes with custom display stand and proprietary crating.
