|Replogle World Globes
Replogle Globes offers over one hundred and twenty different globe styles, some of which you've probably never imagined existed. Globes can be beautiful decorations in your home, educational for your children, great promotional items for your company, or commemorative pieces for that special occasion.
The Company was founded to create globes for use in homes, with mountings compatible with home furnishings. Luther Irwin Replogle believed a globe in the home would make it easier to learn correct geographical relationships, since a globe is the only means of showing relative size and position of land masses and water areas correctly (all flat maps are distorted). In the early days, most globes were made for schools and other institutional uses. Now Replogle Globes is recognized worldwide as a "Globe Specialist" and "Leader" in the globe-making industry.
The Company produces and distributes hundreds of different globe models in 3.3", 4.2", 4.7", 6", 9", 10", 12", 16", 20" and 32" diameters. About 50% of all globes manufactured are 12 inches in diameter, which is considered the standard size for a home or schoolroom. The Company distributes globes through many different sales channels. Retail prices range from $6.00 to $6,800.
The maps on all Replogle Globes show nations, colonies, possessions, boundary lines and place names as officially approved by the United States Government. Maintenance of the content of these maps requires frequent communication with various government agencies. These agencies include the U. S. Department of State, the U. S. Board of Geographic Names, the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Imagery and Mapping Agency.
