The Planet Earth TopoGlobe™ products adds another dimension to Earth science instruction and learning. The large 18" or colossal 30" diameter format globe features dramatic topographic imagery of the Earth for striking representation of the landmass, and bathymetric (i.e., sea floor) data in ocean basins. This real-world elevation data is enhanced with graphic data of rivers, hydrology and coastlines. This real world data, together with a dry-erase surface, enables customizable and recurring dynamic Earth instruction.
Ideal for geology instruction, the Planet Earth TopoGlobe™, Geology and Standard, display topography and bathymetry in striking detail.
- Earth TopoGlobe, Geology™ features enhanced bathymetry using Scripps Institution of Oceanography and NASA color schemes.
- Earth TopoGlobe, Standard™ features enhanced GEBCO bathymetry using blue ocean color schemes.
- Both Geology and Standard Earth TopoGlobes™ feature land topography enhanced using USGS color schemes.
- Planet Earth TopoGlobe™ products provide 3-Dimensional information for macro and structural geology, plate tectonics and Earth science.
