Ever wondered where you’d end up if you drilled through the Earth?
Antipodes are points diametrically opposite each other on the Earth’s surface. This map shows the antipodal shadows of landmasses.
Mathematically, the point antipodal to (λ, φ) is at (λ ± 180°, −φ).
The majority of antipodes appear to be either ocean-ocean or terrestial-ocean, with only a few being terrestial-terrestial.
Inspired by Global distribution of antipodes.
