Have you ever wondered which part of the other side of the earth is directly below you? Find out using this map tunnelling tool.

How to use the Map Tunnelling Tool

Drag map 1 or 2 by clicking and holding the map as you move it. When you let go and finish dragging the map the other map will then show you where about's on the earth the far end of the imaginary tunnel will be. In effect it will show you what is at the other side of the earth.

To make things easier, you can also zoom the map in and out.

You can adjust the height of the map by using the small, medium and large buttons.

You can also change the map view using the Map, Satellite and Hybrid buttons. This works independently for each map.

About

This is a Antipodes Map. An antipode of a point on the earth is the region on the Earth's surface which is diametrically opposite to that point. The two points which are antipodal to one another are considered to be connected by a straight line or tunnel through the centre of the Earth.

What would happen if I drilled a tunnel through the centre of the Earth and jumped into it?

It's pretty creepy that the (presumed) exact opposite point from me on the other side of the planet is nearly the same location where they believe Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 went down, in the Indian Ocean, about 1,500 miles southwest of Perth, Australia. (yikes)

Robbie, fair comment. After investigation I found the GIF for the crosshais was not being diplayed on the exact centre of the map, which lead to this effect. The crosshairs is now offset so that appears on the centre.

I disagree with this tunneling tool. If the equator is 0, I would expect the crosshair on the equator in Map 1 as well the crosshair being on the equator in Map 2. That's not what I'm seeing.

Darn, from Copenhagen I'll end up between the Southern Ocean and the South Pacific Ocean, relatively close to New Zealand.

Right smack in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. From Brisbane, Australia :D

Ha, I was so close. My daughter said I had to stop saying I could see Chinese people through some of our potholes around here. (She said %u201Cthat%u2019s not nice to stereotype%u201D.) So I changed to Australians after visualizing the globe. We're a bit west of the Aussie coast tunneling from Northern Kentucky,USA. Now, I'll have to say a shark to be more accurate. This is fun, thanks for the tunnel. (And watch out for those deep shark-holes, they%u2019ll tear up your car.)

Neat, interesting that the poles and equator don't match up?

there is a movie on NETFLIX called Vivan las Antipodes , that shows several pairs of land. Very highly recommended!

New something like this would exist! I always thought about this. The opposite side of the world to me is a spot in national park that happens to be several times bigger than the entire country i live in hahaha

From Hawaii/Maui, we end up in Botswana. Very interesting! Aloha from the 50th state!

Hmm.. No where in the USA could I dig a tunnel through the earth to China. What do you know.

Weird. When you look at the French Southern Islands near Antarctic and looks like a permanent glacier, the exact opposite side of the world is Southern Alberta which is pretty toasty most times of the year.

@algaeholics England would not get flooded by the Indian Ocean. The center of the earth has no gravity, the ocean flood the center of the earth.

it'd be nice to be able to get a link to the resulting map on google maps. i can fabricate themselves 'cause you provide lat long coordinates, but that's a bit cumbersome. it'd be nice if the link was just there.

Found this on definition of antipodes in Wikipedia. I'm in the ocean... Like most of us I see... Hi from California... USA over there fishing in the Indian Ocean off Madagascar! FWD: together, less than 4% of land is antipodal to land.[3] The largest antipodal land masses are the Malay Archipelago, antipodal to the Amazon Basin and adjoining Andean ranges; east China and Mongolia, antipodal to Chile and Argentina; and Greenland and the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, antipodal to East Antarctica.
