Globular

Globe-shaped; having the form of a ball or sphere; spherical, or nearly so; as, globular atoms. Globular chart, a chart of the earth's surface constructed on the principles of the globular projection.

(Science: geometry) globular projection, a perspective projection of the surface of a hemisphere upon a plane parallel to the base of the hemisphere, the point of sight being taken in the axis produced beyond the surface of the opposite hemisphere a distance equal to the radius of the sphere into the sine of 45 deg . Globular sailing, sailing on the arc of a great circle, or so as to make the shortest distance between two places; circular sailing.
