The remotest place on Earth? The Tibetan Plateau. At least, that’s so according to a series of maps from the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre and the World Bank. An interesting exposition of the maps and underlying techniques and assumptions is available in a series of ten slides from New Scientist. (Tristan da Cunha doesn’t look all that accessible, either.)
