Microsoft Direction Puzzle

The puzzle was posed by Microsoft as a challenge. Looks pretty simple though you have to have a knowledge of directions. Puzzle looked almost as simple as a high school guy can do but it was got wrong my most of the people.
No, its not at all a trick question , very logical , very interesting.
Lets go for it
How many distinct points are there on the surface of the Earth from which you can walk one mile due South, then one mile due East, and then one mile due North, and end up at the same exact spot from which you started?
Give yourself a complete jerk and think about every possibility. It surely is a great question!!
