# Half of Earth with most landmass

About 71% of the Earth's surface is covered with water and the remaining 29% is landmass*. If you could theoretically cut the planet in half, with the objective of producing a half with the most landmass possible (and another with the most water possible), where would the cut be? More specifically, where would the centers (in the surface) of both halves be located?

• The Pacific Ocean should figure prominently in the answer to this. – Daniel Griscom Jun 21 '16 at 1:38
• What's the actual real-world problem that you are trying to solve here? – 410 gone Jun 21 '16 at 9:30
• Of course, but where would the centers of both halves be exactly located? (Specially the one with most landmass) – Gabe12 Jun 21 '16 at 12:07
• @Daniel or alternatively Eurasia\Africa. – JeopardyTempest Jul 14 '16 at 9:02
