Ganymede is the largest moon of Jupiter and is the largest in our solar system with a diameter of 5,262 km (3,280 miles). It has had a complex geological histroy. It has mountains, valleys, craters and lava flows. Ganymede is mottled by both light and dark regions. It is heavily cratered especially in the dark regions implying ancient origin. This icosahedron was created from a mosaic of images taken by the Voyager spacecrafts. It can be assemble cutting along the edges of the map. Tape or glue can be used to assemble the globe. Double-sided tape works well. The challenge is in connecting the last edges together. Good luck and have fun.
