World Globes -
As explorers discovered more of the new world, the maps were constantly upgraded, changed, and edited. For this reason, many of the first globes of the world were constructed in wood and drawn on with charcoal that could be smudged away.

A globe of the world can be radically different from another in both size and shape. They can be as small as to fit in the palm of your hand or as big as a beach ball.

For example, if you receive an enquiry from a customer whose location is in LS26 3PX then you can easily allocate that prospect to your sales person who is responsible for the LS26 Postcode District. This is one of the most common applications for Postcode wall maps.
The most common way of defining field sales areas is also through the use of the Postcode system.
