World Globes from Geographic Experts

Eureka Globe's mapmakers are highly trained in both the art and science of globe making. Founded in 1983 in Berkeley, California, the company specializes in making top-quality maps, atlases and globes. A rigorous system of timely geographic research, editorial review and quality control insures each master design meets Eureka's high standards before being released for printing.

Accurate Geopolitical Information

Eureka Globe's mapmakers track changes worldwide, making place name and boundary updates each year. Each border and label has been carefully researched to provide the most accurate and current information possible.

Updateable Globes

Eureka Globes will provide a new 12" replacement ball for $50 or $75 for a 16" ball (plus S&H) to any Eureka Cartography Globe owner. A removable pin releases the globe from the meridian for easy replacement.

Unique Map Designs

The three different Eureka Cartography globe designs represent a modern interpretation of traditional cartographic styles throughout history. The oldest style is used on the parchment ocean globe with softly curved type and delicate coastal vignettes. The light blue ocean globe employs techniques from the 18th and 19th centuries. Our deep blue/gold earth globe ball interprets the world in a new, yet classic form to make a bold statement. All globes present current geopolitical information.

Superb Printing

Each Eureka globe is printed with special lustrous inks to add subtle highlights to decorative elements, much like the gilded portolan charts used by kings centuries ago. The highly polished bronze and blue world globe is created entirely from LusterPrint(tm) inks, resulting in an enamel-like finish. The parchment ocean globe has gold highlights for decorative elements and the light blue ocean globe uses both copper and deep blue reflective inks for decorative elements.

Detailed Place Names & Coastlines

Over 3000 place names are included on every 12" globe, 4000 on every 16" globe ball. In addition to cities, major landforms, rivers and water bodies are labeled. Highly detailed coastlines represent all continents and islands with precision.

Hand-crafted Designer Stands

Each stand is designed to complement but not overpower the globe. All are hand-finished and paired with coordinated meridians. Full rotating meridians allow the globe to pivot 360ø in addition to full rotation from the poles. A semi-meridian spins 360ø about the poles only, minimizing visual interference while retaining an articulated scale of degrees. An axis arm eliminates the meridian entirely but permits full 360ø rotation about the polar axis.

Easy to Read

Special care is taken to insure that all labels and symbols are legible. Abbreviations are utilized only rarely to assist those using the globes for reference.

Selecting a floor or table stand is a matter of personal preference and location. Table models are perfect for desks, credenzas, side or coffee tables, pedestals, wide shelves or ledges. Floor globes complement living rooms, dens, libraries, offices and entryways, much like fine furniture.
