The most realistic way to represent the topography of the Earth is by using a globe; this fact was known as early as in ancient Greece. The biggest contribution to the making of these reduced models of our planet was made by Gerardus Mercator, who split the surface of the globe into zones in the 16th century This gave rise to a revolution in the development of cartography, which also sparked the beginning of the mass production of globes. The principle for the production of this instrument has remained the same to this day; the only difference is that the major part of the process is now automated. However, globes of individual countries are still quite unusual and rare; this is why we decided to take on the project of designing the globe of Slovenia, which was performed within the Cartography III study course at the Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering. The making of the globe of Slovenia includes the production of a general map of the country at the scale of I: 1,000,000, the projection of a flat map on the globe and the pasting of printed zones on the supporting medium, in our case a table lamp.
