The winged design of the Compass Star exemplifies a stylish modern look with a touch of traditional elegance. A solid walnut base cradles the globe and antique-brass die-cast meridian. The design of the hardwood base allows the meridian to swing in either direction for easy viewing of the Southern Hemisphere. Highlighted on the base is an inlaid National Geographic commemorative coin. Features the latest National Geographic cartography with clear bold fonts and colorful map design.
The up-to-date National Geographic globe ball is produced in the United States by Replogle Globes. It is expertly crafted using 100% re-claimed paperfiber.
Globe details include over 4,000 place names, countries represented in contrasting colors, delineated U.S. states, and bodies of water. Raised relief provides a better perspective of topographic features such as mounting ranges. Ocean floor trenches, basins, and ridges are illustrated through detailed visual relief shading. The meridian is fully calibrated and a time dial is featured at the North Pole.
