What is an antipode?

An antipode, or antipodal point, is the point on the planet that is located diametrically opposite to a specific geographic location, and therefore, is the farthest point in the world from that location. The antipode of any place can be identified by drawing an imaginary straight line that passes through the center of the planet and reaches the other side of the world.

Since most of the planet is covered by water (71%), the antipodal point to most cities is located in the ocean. However, there are many cities around the world that are antipodes of each other.
