THE PHILIPPINES LIES OPPOSITE OF BRAZIL

March 25, 2009

Antipodes Map

In geography, the antipodes of any place on Earth is its antipodal point; that is, the region on the Earth’s surface which is diametrically opposite to it. Two points which are antipodal to one another are connected by a straight line through the centre of the Earth. Full article at Wikipedia.

I experimented with the Philippines.

Antipodal points take up mostly Brazil,  stretching from down south near its border with Paraguay going up a point east of Manaus, taking a small slice off Bolivia’s eastern side.  Quezon City lies opposite west of a place called Tangara da Serra and east of Parque Nacional Noel Kempff; Laoag City is opposite a point north of Robore; General Santos City, near a place marked Novo Progreso; Puerto Princesa, east of Machadinho D’oeste; and Cebu City, west of Peixoto de Azevedo.
