    Hi friend,



    Basic Differences between Map and Globe:

    1. A map is a two dimensional presentation of different regions of the World,whereas a Globe is a three dimensional representation of the entire world .

    2. A map presents the physical features of the particular region of the earth on a plane surface, a globe can be called as a duplicate earth,it is round in shape and shows accurate areas,distances,directions and relative shape and size.

    3. A map is easy to use and portable whereas a globe is not.It is easier to identify regions in map as compared to globe.

    4. When it comes to accuracy,globe is more accurate than map.Maps may have wide gaps between regions that are not seen in globe.

    5. A map presents a distorted view as it is flat,whereas Globe presents a less deformed view as it is round in shape.






    There are several advantages and disadvantages of both,but you can choose according to your convenience.



    All the best.
