I am not completely sure what you are asking, however when discussing the Earth's surface I find an interesting comparison. We know that the Earth is an oblate spheroid (wider in the middle than around the poles) and we know the tallest mountain is approximately 5 miles above sea level and the lowest point is about 7 miles below sea level. Even taking all this things into account, if you shrunk the Earth down to the size of a bowling ball, you would have a sphere more precise than any bowling ball ever made.
