CGMW has partnered with Real World Globes based in Visalia, California to produce the Geological Globe of the World.

This is the world’s most comprehensive globe depicting the Earth’s geological features taken from the 3rd revised edition of the Geological Map of the World compiled at 1:35 000 000 scale and published in 2014. The conversion into a spherical format of CGMW’s data by Real World Globes’s GIS expert and cartographer, Joe Roubal, results in the world’s most accurate and realistic representation of geologic information.

The three-dimensional design of the Geological Globe of the World is intended to help teachers, scientists and map enthusiasts. Unlike most of the globes, Real World Globes are meant to be handled and marked up and has the advantage to be light weighted. Featuring a durable dry-erase vinyl surface, the globe creates a unique and engaging experience to foster discussion, interaction and more active classroom instruction.

The Geological Globe of the World is available fully assembled, in three sizes: Colossal (30-inch diameter) 3,450 USD, Large (18-inch diameter) 450 USD, and Small (10-inch diameter) 250 USD. These prices do not include TVA due on declared comercial value and transport when imported into the European Union. Shipping cost are notified by the manufacturer upon confirmation of your order.
