About This Globe
The Columbus Duorama globe combines many rare features to create a truly premium desk globe. The globe ball itself is 16" (40cm) in diameter making it in the largest category of desk globes available.
The cartography is totally up to date and shows physical mapping when the light is off. Physical mapping shows the deserts, forests and mountainous regions in great detail. The globe also features several thousand place names that should be large enough for any well sighted person to read, another benefit of a 16" globe ball.
When the light is on the you can make out the borders of different countries as the land masses change colour. This is called dual mapping, and on this globe, is a subtle but attractive effect.
The base and meridian are made of steel and the ball is made of heavy duty vinyl. This globe is illuminated via a cable and looks fantastic in a moderately dark room.

Good quality, looks expensive...and it is! But, you get what you pay for!
Being of a larger size the detail is very good.
Looks brilliant at night when illuminated
My only gripe would be the electric cable enters the base at the front rather than the back..... but who cares?
Overall very pleased with it (Posted on 29/03/2018)
