The National Geographic
Nicollet features a wonderful combination of the most sought-out features of
new world globes on the market: Raised Relief and internal
illumination. The sturdy design and
excellent value make this an ideal globe for the classroom. Also looks great
displayed in any home or office.
The 16" blue ocean raised relief political globe sits mounted in a fully calibrated swing meridian, this allows the globe to tilt a full 360° as well as spin. A medium teak hardwood base with cherry finish supports the steel yoke and die-cast meridian. Award winning National Geographic cartography features crisp easy to read fonts with colorful shading consistent with their popular maps.
Globe details include over 4,000 place names, countries represented in contrasting colors, and delineated U.S. states. Political map information is up-to-date. Raised relief helps distinguish topographic features. Warm and cold ocean currents are also labeled, ocean depths are represented with shading.
Please note that this illuminated world globe has a cord routed from the southern axis of the globe ball. The photographer has hidden the cord in the photos.
