DeLorme’s Map Store in Yarmouth, ME, is full of maps and travel navigation books and paraphernalia–a candy store for travelers
You can’t miss it at exit 17 off I-295 in Maine. The three-story-tall window display is a scale model of the earth. Named Eartha, the globe is one-millionth actual size and is the largest printed image of the earth ever created. One hundred forty gigabytes of data of satellite imagery, shaded relief, and bathymetry were needed to create the display.
The diameter is over 41 square feet, with a surface of over 5300 square feet. Eartha rests on a cantilevered arm and rotates on its axis tilted to 23.5 degrees. The day I was there the rotation speed was set at one rpm.
