It is shown that the problem of the best uniform approximation in the Hausdorff metric of a continuous set-valued map with finite-dimensional compact convex images by constant set-valued maps whose images are balls in some norm can be reduced to a visual geometric problem. The latter consists in constructing a spherical layer of minimal thickness which contains the complement of a compact convex set to a larger compact convex set.
