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.


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?

Unless you're in China or South America, the exact opposite of is ocean. Maybe the Prime Meridian should run through Beijing.

Can I download this tool for a program I am writing?

can you make it so your digging paralell to the equator? im in New Brunswick, Canada, and looks like if i dug at a bit of an angle, i actually would end up in China... and bypass that extremely hot core...ha

Strange how I get different results when I go directly to google maps and type in the same coordinates!!

I started digging from here in Weber, New Zealand and ended up in Madrid Spain!

I'm using the map to plan a future trip to Whangarie New Zealand. It is exactly opposite the Riad I stayed in while in Tangier Morocco. When I get there I'll have friends I met in Tangier place one piece of bread on the ground and I'll do the same in Whangarei. The entire earth will become a sandwich!!!

useful to know how far away from a bad marriage you can get.

This honestly made me realize how big the earth is... Awesome job.

I often use the phrase "digging to china" when asking where my kids are digging to. Nice to know it's actually the Indian Ocean near Australia that they could be digging to.
By Jennifer on 13/11/2014

I had always hoped, as a Londoner, that Australia would be exactly 'down under' (what brought me to this website). Turns out 'down under' is actually miles away, South East of New Zealand in fact. Thank you for this illuminating tool. Well done!

No mal, yo podré llegar en el océano indiano de mi casa con...un taladro!

the main thing i found that the antipodal point lies on sea for any point on land and vice versa for almost 95 percents points. Amazing!!!!
