Maps, Charts, Globes, Monitors
What do you use to help envision world geography?
I have a chart of the world, with latitude and longitude, also depicting the time zones. But when I really want to see where someplace is in relationship to another, or where I am at, I resort to my globe.
Flat paper maps, or charts simply seem to not portray things such as the “Great Route”; which simply means why pilots fly over the globe, instead of around it, taking a shorter route.
What do you use?
Do you have a globe on board, to aid and assist?
I know a globe is not most accurate, in pinpointing location, but it seems to provide a good overview. For me it provides a realistic perspective.
A globe, seems to me, would take up valuable space on a cruising vessel. Do you need one? Do you have one, use it, and take it with on the boat?
