I want to create a 3D earth model that can be easily manipulated. The emphasis however, is that the continent models must be to scale and in proportion and that the size of the spherical model must be easily modified without affecting the size of the continent models that are wrapped on the surface.
The continent models must be come in the standard form but be separable that is I must be able to move them around individually on the surface. The continents can be very basic outline forms without color and the color of the globe itself is not important.
Later I might request colored continent models or topographical continent models.
I am experimenting with earth expansion models so the continents at this point must be constant whereas the size of the sphere changes.
