Meghan: A globe may seem an out of date accessory when interactive maps are just a mouse click away. But globes are much more hip and relevant than you would think. During my trip to Replogle Globes I discovered what globe can offer that a map can’t match during my talk with chief cartographer Terry Donavan. I am hitting the road searching for answers and finding great design. It’s a quest of beauty, function and of course inspiration. Terry: Where if you have a flat map you will distort the relationship between places and the size of places as far north—the North Pole to areas along the equator. So there is distortion with flat map where as the Earth is in its natural state when you see it in globe. And you can measure distances easier. You can look at plane routes or jet routes in how they travel—it makes more sense looking at a globe when you analyze the relationship between places and even movement of ships and planes, and even drainage to very extent to understand this. The dynamics of the Earth is easily understood with the globe.
Meghan: To gain proper perspectives don’t count on a flat map. A globe is the way to go. However, with the gain perspective comes a loss of detail because it’s just too difficult to squeeze all the place names and geographic information onto a globe unless it is really, really big.
Terry: On globe you have a lot less space so you really don’t have the opportunity to show as many detail images as you would on a flat map.
For detailed geographic information you’ll need a map. But even the most interactive map in is a spun in a spinning globe or feeling a mountain range in an embossed globe with your fingertips.
