Geo-Globes comprises an impressive collection of 78 separate view points, 4 of the North Pole, 18 at latitude 40 degrees north, 18 equatorial, 18 at latitude 40 degrees south, 4 of the South Pole and an additional 16 images centred upon the countries of Europe.
Each image is self contained with 6 colour variations and 8 channel masks comprising lakes, rivers and graticules etc., making it quick an easy to select the information you require.
Click on the world image to view a Globe centred on an area of your choice.
Each of the globes in this set has been designed with professional designers in mind embodying the highest cartographic standards.
Once you have chosen your desired viewpoint, changing colours to one of the six standards is as simple as clicking the mouse.
Unlike other products Geo-Globes are constructed digitally, and therefore are coloured accurately according to height and terrain type.
Although these documents are RGB for use with on screen presentations all colours have been tabulated to correspond with reproducible CMYK colours. From start to finish this is a professional product created by professional cartographers.
If however the colours provided are not suitable for the job required, the system allows you to quickly generate your own.
Each Geo-Globe image comes complete with a series of topographic and feature masks, enabling the user to quickly add lakes, rivers, graticules and country boarders.
Digitally created drainage patterns for the whole world in fine detail.
Lakes have been digitally created from the original DTM to give the most accurate outlines available at this scale.
Graticules at every 10 degrees are another feature which may be added, above or below the landmasses as desired, and coloured or intensified to suit.
All the latest national and international borders are included
This mask enables the land to be separated from the ocean features.
All these topographic features are independently constructed for each of the 78 viewpoints and may be manipulated in Photoshop prior to addition, i.e. colour, width, transparency etc. giving unlimited variability to suit individual needs.
One of the amazing and unique features of Geo-Globes is the inclusion of the "Height Mask". This, used in conjunction with Adobe Photoshop's Lighting filter, allows the user to give extra 3d realism to the land or even create their own relief images from scratch.
After satisfactorily creating the globe of your choice why not go one step further and add photographic lens flares, include the sun or even add clouds. Just one or two of the endless extensions you can make to Geo-Globes
Geo-Globes comprises a series of 19 individual elements including channel masks, layers and documents, designed to give hundreds of thousands of combinations, sufficient to satisfy even the most demanding design studio or publisher. And yet there is more. By manipulating the standard set in Adobe Photoshop the range of combinations runs into billions.
