Limitations of Globe
A globe is a spherical three-dimensional structure with a world map showing the water bodies and the land masses. Along with this, the globe depicts the network of longitudinal and latitudinal lines. If it shows the model of the earth, then it is called the Terrestrial globe, while if it represents the celestial sphere, it is called the celestial globe. Though it helps understand the earth, it has got a few limitations. The limitations of the globe are-
- It doesn't show the exact location between the two points.
- Its size is tiny as compared to earth.
- It is hard to carry.
- It cannot be made for or as a part of the earth.
