Eartha, still holds The Guinness Book of World record for the largest 3D rotating world map that stands over 3-stories tall.

Eartha is a 3-dimensional scale model of our earth with mountains and land-forms 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. It took two years to build and represents earth as it is seen from space. Its scale is 1:1,000,000, which works out to be one inch equaling nearly 16 miles. At this scale, California is three and a half feet tall!

Eartha is located at DeLorme headquarters in Yalmouth, ME in its 3-sided, 3 story glass atrium building. Within the same building is The Map Store that has tons of outstanding resources for all ages.  If you travel, I highly recommend a stop to this place and at least invest in their detailed paper atlases that are published for every states.

DeLorme is located just minutes for LL Beans headquarters in Freeport, ME.
