Thanks Dr. Buckely for that superb answer to my previous question on how to design a locator globe map.
Referring back to the Oregan Earthquake map, I would also like to know how the piece of "land chunk" at the bottom of the map was extruded in 3D ???
Can you please help me with step by step instructions on how to do this and place the extruded land piece on top of another map similar to the Oregan map ???
Thank you so much.

Mapping Center Answer:

This effect is achieved very simply by placing one data frame over the other and making sure that the data frame on top has a background fill set to None.  This is explained in a little bit of detail in the "Globe on Globe" answer here on Ask a Cartographer.
