The renaissance development of a perspectival or holistic globe utilizing the grid of latitude and longitude supplanted the globe broken up into distinct zones. From the modern globe’s mathematical projection developed the notion that “anywhere is linked to everywhere” (Agnew), lending a metageographical naturalness to imperialist territorial aggrandizement and capitalist accumulation.
