Free Map Tools' Map Tunnelling Tool will finally put to rest this important question: if you were to dig a tunnel across the Earth, where would you end up? If you live in Toronto, you'd end up at the bottom of the Indian Ocean -- so much for my evil plan of joining forces with Australia and becoming a global super power.

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.
