The first difference between a map and a globe is a physical one: a map is a flat, two-dimensional representation of a particular geographical region or regions, and a globe is a three-dimensional representation of the entire world. A map is more limited than a globe in terms of its geographical scope, and it aims to give a realistic representation of a country, a region of a country or the world, or a particular city. The purpose of a map is to give detail, such as the location of roads, rivers, streets, and so on. Many maps include landmarks or some description of the geographical terrain. While a globe provides a picture of the entire world, unlike maps, they limit themselves to basic information, like countries' names, oceans and seas, some important rivers, and mountains.
