29% of Earth is land mass. Of that 29% humans occupy less than 1% of that area. Of the remaining 28% about 40% is pure wilderness. 14% is true desert and 15% has desert like characteristics. 9% is Antarctica. Most of the remaining 22% are agricultural areas. There may be other areas with a human footprint of some kind.

By the most common criteria used (which includes swamps and seasonal dry land), the Earth has a land surface of 144,940,000 km2, which is about 29.2% of the total surface area… of the planet.
29% of Earth is land, and only 1% is occupied by humans.
the percentage that covers the earth's surface that is land is 30%
71.11 is water and 28.89 is land
70percent of the Earth is land
About 30% is actual land. This does not include the polar ice caps since those are just icebergs floating, but does include the mainland of Antartica.
Because humans invented weapons, and developed agriculture.
land is 28.888888888889 percent and the water is 71.111111111111. This is the exact percentage. Due to the Quran, the water (Bahar) word is mentioned 32 times, since land (Ba…r) is mentioned 13 times. So, 32 + 13 = 45 32 / 45 = 0.71111111111111 x 100 = 71.111111111111% 13 / 45 = 0.28888888888889 x 100 = 28.888888888889% 71.111111111111 + 28.888888888889 = Exactly 100%. So this is the exact percentage of the earth. Good luck.
3 percent is useable to humans and land animals
I would say about 60%
I read that it's about 1 fith but I might be wrong
The continent of Antarctica covers about 10% of the earth's surface. It is about as large as USA and Mexico, combined.
