What is the meaning of map and globe?
== == A map is a flat, two-dimensional representation of an
area. Usually maps present a view from above. Normally the space
they represent is a geographic area (cities, towns, countries or
neighbourhoods, for example), but maps can in theory represent
non-geographical things (a "map" of the circulatory system) or even
things with no physical reality at all (a "map" of someone's
consciousness). A globe is a three-dimensional map of the earth
overlayed on a sphere. Other differences include the fact that any
large map, being an attempt to display part of the surface of a
sphere (the earth) on a flat sheet of paper, is always distorted to
some degree, while a globe is not.
