"The Giant Globe"
is the joint project of company Räthgloben in Leipzig and MPA "Kartografija".
It was possible to both partners exclusive way to create the imposing globe which makes impression as from the point of view of its high cartographical quality and original design for each observer.
"Giant Globe" 128 сm and the cartographical segments executed in scale 1:10 Mio are first-ever and while the only thing from a series "Big globes".
Globe manufacturing was carried out in some stages:
Russian cartographical data on the basis of geodetic shooting were used. These data of high cartographical quality also can adapt for manufacture of globes of different function without essential expenses or if necessary to be supplemented with new thematic data on request of the Customer.
For example, for drawing of routes for steamship companies, either aviation lines, or networks of offices for the international concerns or the companies.
These additional given are put in the cartographical way on segments ordered Globes.
Data by digital way are put on segments of the globe and are printed on a special paper.
Pasting of separate segments of the globe on the top surface of a sphere is carried out manually and it is the part of all manufacture of globes most difficult and demanding a lot of time. The qualified experience is the basic precondition for this unusual and rare manual work.
After considerable drying on time and varnishing globe spheres are mounted in a stable skeleton from a high-quality steel.
