Antipodes Map

This map helps you find the antipodes (the other side of the world) of any place on Earth.

The Left Map presents the place for which you want to find the antipodal point. The Right Map shows the antipodal point for the selected location on the left map.

Drag the left map, by clicking and holding as you move it, and when you will find the desired location, just click on it, and our "man" will dig a tunnel from selected location, right through the center of the Earth, up to the other side of the world which will be represented on Right Map.

Both maps can be moved and zoomed in and out. Bellow each map you can view the selected location address and geographical coordinates (latitude and longitude).

About

The antipodes of any place on the Earth is the point on the Earth's surface which is diametrically opposite to it. Two points that are antipodal to each other are connected by a straight line running through the centre of the Earth. An antipodal point it is often called an antipode (Wikipedia).

The Most of Europeans and Americans believe that if you dig a hole, in a straight line through the center of the Earth, you would come out on the other side right in China. But this is just a saying, because, in reality, if you dig a straight tunnel, in most areas, of Europe or United States you will come out in the ocean. The only places where a straight hole will emerge in China ar parts in Argentina and Chile.


Mathematically, the geographical coordinates of an antipodal point can be calculate as:
  • the latitude of the place you want to find the antipodes must be converted to the opposite hemisphere (eg: 45° North will be 45° South or -45°);
  • the longitude of the place you want to find the antipodes must be subtracted from 180° and the result will be converted to opposite hemisphere (eg: 25° West will be 180° - 25° = 155° East or -155°).

Antipodes Cities

Did you know?

In the Northern Hemisphere, "the Antipodes" is often used to refer to Australia and New Zealand, and "Antipodeans" to their inhabitants.

The two largest human inhabited antipodal areas are located in East Asia (China, Mongolia) and South America (Argentina and Chile).

The largest antipodal land masses are the Malay Archipelago (Indonesia, Philippines, New Guinea), antipodal to the Amazon Basin and adjoining Andean ranges.

The Australian mainland is the largest landmass with its antipodes entirely in ocean.

The majority of locations on land do not have land-based antipodes.

By definition, the North Pole and the South Pole are antipodes.
