The part exists.

I am trying to make the image for mapping, but I am unsure how to map the image on the part.

It should be straightforward using spherical mapping. The attached file will map earth.png (not included) onto a sphere. (That just needs to be any map of the Earth using Mercator Projection, I think.) Obviously, mapping it onto the part is a bit more difficult, but it shouldn't be too hard.

Note that the LDView 4.3 doesn't support spherical mapping, although LDView 4.4 will. LDD already supports it, as far as I know.
