地 is a Chinese character (Pinyin: dì; Japanese character: chi or tsuchi) which symbolises earth; field; area. It is a combination of symbols 土, -tǔ (earth); and 也 -yě (also).  It is one of Joël Bellassen's 400 characters. At the behest of Zong Qinke, 地 was replaced by 埊, one of the Chinese characters of Empress Wu. The intention was to showcase Empress Dowager Wu Zetian's greatness, but, following her death in 705, 地 became re-established.

In the Chinese philosophical systems of Taoism and Confucianism, Dì is mentioned in relationship to its complementary aspect of Tian (天), which is most often translated as "Heaven". These two aspects of cosmology are representative of the dualistic nature of Taoism. They are thought to maintain the two poles of the Three Realms of reality, with the middle realm occupied by Humanity (人 Ren).
In Chinese dominoes 地 is 1-1 (earth).
