What Is Globe?

Two essential tools used to study the Earth are Globe and Map.

A globe is a miniature model of the earth which shows us its different features on a small scale.

The Globe map was inverted in 1492 AD.

A globe map shows us:

  • Shows the exact location
  • Shows shapes of different feature
  • It gives an idea of the relative size of the land areas and water bodies.

The large water bodies called oceans are shown in blue colour.

Earth Continents:

Large extensive masses of land on the earth are called continents.

Name the Seven Continents of the World:

Continent Area (km2) Population Density(p/km2)
1. Asia 31,033,131 150
2. Africa 29,648,481 45
3. Europe 22,134,900 34

5. South America 17,461,112 25
6. Australia/Oceania 8,486,460 5

The Equator in Globe map:

The earth has two poles:

  • North pole

The imaginary line which divides the earth into two halves is called the Equator.
