I'm new to Blender and I need to create a model of spherical earth with all the countries as separate meshes.
For now I've managed to create a flat map of the earth with separate countries from a shapefile, but I'm not really sure what to do next. I've read plenty of stuff in Internet, but couldn't find anything that will help me to get a desirable result (globe with separate meshes as countries).
Is it actually possible with blender? Any ideas and suggestions are very appreciated.
