Why is it more convenient to work with a geographic map than with a globe?

The globe is a unique model of the globe, but it is not very convenient to work with it. The geographical map, although it does not show the sphericity of the earth’s surface, allows you to survey the entire Earth at once. It is easy to measure distances, areas and angles on a map using a ruler and protractor. A large map can be folded and carried around, but with a globe it will not work. Large-scale maps can be used to study even small territories in detail, while globes are produced only in small scales and several thematic types, and the variety of maps is almost endless.

One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society. A person today needs to study almost all his life, mastering everything new and new, acquiring the necessary professional qualities.
