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?

I have to put in latitude and longitude. I just want to put in Virginia and have it do the work for me.

Something is wrong with the latitude finding. The map is showing antipodes in the Northern Hemisphere for points in the Northern Hemisphere. Longitude seems to be working correctly, though.
By Michael Seifert on 16th November 2021

This is completely wrong. Points in the northern hemisphere must always yield results in the southern hemisphere, but that is not happening.

31dt August 2021 bugfix is not fixed. it still moves when zooming in and out. it went from the netherland to turkey when zooming out.

To answer the question "At what point on each of the main highways of Taiwan do they cross the (virtual (antipodal)) Argentina / Paraguay border?" What we need is an overlay!

Hi, its in decimal DMS, for example the Eiffel tower would be 48.8583 and 2.2944

How do you add latitude and longitude? What format? Please include an example.
By Curious on 24th September 2020

Now it finally works. When I tried it months ago, it was wrong but now it's correct.
