A round or spherical body, solid or hollow; a body whose surface is in every part equidistant from the center; a ball; a sphere.
Anything which is nearly spherical or globular in shape; as, the globe of the eye; the globe of a lamp.
The earth; the terraqueous ball; -- usually preceded by the definite article.
A round model of the world; a spherical representation of the earth or heavens; as, a terrestrial or celestial globe; -- called also artificial globe.
A scaled down spherical representation or model of the Earth. A map on a sphere.
Objects such as the earth or the human heart, viewed from ordinary (fallen) perspectives, appear to be globes, folded in on themselves rather than infinite. See also vortex.
Sphere showing a map of the world (terrestrial globe) or of the heavens (celestial globe), that is usually mounted on an axis and can be turned.
The reduced model of the spherical earth surface which must be distorted in various ways in order to transform earth features onto a flat planar surface; also called the generating globe or reference globe.
A spherical map of the earth or heavens
A true-to-scale map of the Earth that duplicates its round shape and correctly represents areas, relative size and shape of physical features, distances, and directions.
the 3rd planet from the sun; the planet on which we live; "the Earth moves around the sun"; "he sailed around the world"
an object with a spherical shape; "a ball of fire"
a sphere on which a map (especially of the earth) is represented
a better model for air navigation
a map of the world as it really looks
a model of a spheroid, usually of the Earth or another celestial body
a round ball with a map on it
a round representation of the earth's surface
a small-scale model, either of a celestial body or of the heavens, covered with a map
a sphere representing the earth or one of the planets
a sphere shaped model of earth or any other celestial body
a three-dimensional spheroid representation of a place, usually of a planet
a symbol of the world and the domination of it. Thus it was the sign of the Roman Empire. The globe was also a symbol of eternity since its spherical shape had neither beginning nor end.
A great way to activate the earth element, especially when placed in the northeast. A globe is also thought to stimulate the intellect when placed in the northeast area of a student's room or study.
a globe is a miniature model or representation of the Earth. It has the same shape as the Earth and usually has a cover that shows the various surfaces and elevations of the planet. Seas and oceans are shades of blue/green. Mountain ranges are often coloured shades of brown. Some globes show the borders between countries and boundaries between provinces and states.
This was a map of the word drawn on a sphere. In Victorian times, the British Empire was shown in one colour. This would have been used for geography lessons.
A map of the world or a celestial map on a sphere, allowing for a more accurate representation of the Earth's surface than can be shown on a flat map.
A globe is a small, spherical model of the Earth.
A transparent or translucent spherical lamp enclosure.
The entire spherical eyeball composed of the three major layers, corneo-sclera, uvea, and retina.
A three-dimensional model of the earth made by reducing the representative fraction to less than 1:1.
An extremely potent representation of the earth element, brings good education luck when placed in the northeast corner of a students room.
A globe is a three-dimensional scale model of a spheroid celestial body such as a planet, star or moon, in particular Earth, or, alternatively, a spherical representation of the sky with the stars (but without the Sun, Moon, or planets, because their positions vary relative to those of the stars; however, the ecliptic, along which the Sun moves, is indicated). The word globe comes from the Latin word globus, meaning round mass or sphere.
