The world's largest rotating globe, nicknamed "Eartha", is located at the headquarters of DeLorme, a business that provides mapping products, which is in Yarmouth, Maine, the United States, about 15 minutes north of Portland. The globe is enormous — 41 feet in diameter and weighs 2,500 kg, so big that you need to take the stairs to the second or third floor to see the northern hemisphere. In 1999 the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed it was the largest globe to be ever made, beating the previous title holder, the Globe of Peace, located in Pesaro, Italy, by more than 9 feet. The globe is housed inside a three-story glass atrium which is beautifully illuminated at night and readily visible from U.S. Route 1.
