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

Unlink Zoom between Map 1 and Map 2
Keep on the same latitude
Input the latitude and longitude of a point on the left map and see its corresponding antipode on the right map.
OR, search by place name...
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.

Ideas and improvements that are due to be implemented in the future. If you think of any ways of improving this tunnelling tool or spot any bugs, then please get in touch.
- Measure distance between the two points in question to discover the length of the tunnel (request by Baker)
- KML download for each of the two points for use in Google Earth

I love this tool. What a great reference for the non-tech people like myself.

As well as drilling at 90 degrees to the horizontal plane, where would you come out if facing North and popped out at 45 degrees - so direction facing and degree of incline...

What is the equation?? is it a theory or equation we need to know if that is an accurate test or not ?
does anyone know of a map that shows this side and the other side overlapped ??

It's interesting how little of the populated world actually overlaps. Pretty much only Argentina and Indonesia.
Yes, Svalbard has an antipode
