    The article piqued my interest, so I did a little searching and discovered that the University of Minnesota has a high-res scan of their copy, in 4 sections.

    Click on the sections labeled "Under the Magnifying Glass" at the bottom of the page.

    this looks great, lots of other fun maps, pre-columbus as well, at this site.

    is this the first globe?

    definitely worth making.

    Some of the high resolution gore panels need to be scaled up to match the others.

    Nice job, Raimund!
    Where did you get the image to make the model from?
