Dubbed as the world's largest rotating globe, the DeLorme Eartha was made with the intention to make others aware of the wonderful world around us.

The mapping company created the rotating model of the planet, which measures at 41.5 foot in diameter. The Guinness Book of World Records has come forth to confirm that in fact it is the largest globe in existence. The structure is made up of over 6,000 lightweight aluminum tubes, which is covered by 792 mapping sections. The vivid colors and meticulous details of the DeLorme Eartha make for an experience that can seldom be replicated. As the company states, "Eartha will instill a sense of wonder in people when they first see it."

For those intrigued to see it up close, the beautiful three-dimensional globe, which took two years to create, is located at the DeLorme headquarters in Yarmouth, Maine.
