DELORME

Eartha, The World’s Largest Revolving and Rotating Globe illuminates DeLorme headquarters in Yarmouth, Maine.

Eartha is a 3-dimensional scale model of our earth with mountains and landforms in full 3D, that rotates and revolves, simulating the earth’s real movements. Eartha was given the title of 'World's Largest Revolving/Rotating Globe' by the editors of the Guinness Book of World Records in 1999, and still holds that record today.

It measures 41.5 ft in diameter. Unveiled July 23, 1998 Eartha took two years to build and represents earth as it is seen from space. It rotates and revolves on a specially designed and built mechanized, cantilever arm.

Housed in a three-story glass atrium at the company's headquarters in Yarmouth, Maine, Eartha took two years to build and represents earth as it is seen from space. Every continent is beautifully detailed, with vivid colors illustrating all levels of vegetation, major roadways and cities. Ocean depths are also completely represented.

Every aspect of Eartha was developed using computer technology. It was designed by founder David DeLorme. and constructed by DeLorme staff members.

Eartha shows the world as it appears from space - oceans, continents, mountain ranges, deserts, lakes and rivers, and more. Enjoy different perspectives of our planet, from ground level as well as 2nd and 3rd floor balconies (elevator available).
