This 12" political globe features up-to-date award winning cartography from National Geographic. A contemporary National Geographic map is combined with parchment color tones reminiscent of globes from centuries past. The antique-brass plated semi-meridian and base enhance the overall elegance of the globe.
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.
The National Geographic globe ball is produced in the United States by Replogle Globes. It is expertly crafted using 100% re-claimed paperfiber.
