a geographical map

A contour map, possibly.

MOOSE says that 3d modeling is based on mathematical representation of any three-dimensional surface of object.

no; surface area applies to the square unit of measurement of a 2-dimensional surface, such as one face of a box (length and width). Volume is a 3-dimensional representation that takes the 2-dimensional surface area (length x width) and adds a 3rd dimension in the form of depth, or height. Answers in volume will always be a cubic unit of measure. Summing it up: Surface Area: L x W Cubic Area (Volume): L x W x H

It is a polyhedron.

The two dimensional representation of the Earth's surface on piece of paper is called a map. Maps can show an area in great detail or in very broad outlines.

A flat map is two dimensional. A Globe is three dimensional. The Earth is three dimensional. If you try and express a three dimensional object using a two dimensional surface, you introduce distortions. A flat map has distortions, a globe is a truer representation.
