== == 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.

Differences between a map and globe?

A Globe is a sphere (3D) and represents the whole Earth. A map is 2d like on paper and can represent the whole Earth, or just specific areas. This is what i have discovered. I discovered that a map has a key and a globe does not. A globe shows the entire earth and a map shows a particular part of the earth. A globe spins and a map does not. A globe is made of hard material and can't fold while a map is made of paper and can fold.
