However, the Sigmaringen only gets more fascinating when illuminated. This world globe takes on some additional aspects political map when turned on; with different hues coloring the world's various countries. Still, the 3D shading of the planet's surface from the physical map, which represents the Earth's ridges and mountains, is displayed even with the light on. Bathe in the cartographic splendor of the DUORAMA map, which carries aspects of two informative maps in one. This Columbus Sigmaringen Illuminated Desktop Globe is an exemplary model.
