The antipode can be calculated by understanding the geographic coordinates and applying simple formulas. We will use the following variables:
Step 1: Obtain the geographic coordinates of Geta
The DMS coordinates are: 60°22'28.3'' N 19°50'40.4'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 60.37453°
LngO = 19.84455°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -60.37453°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 19.84455 - 180° = -160.15545°
Since the longitude is positive, we subtract 180° to ensure the final value lies between (-180, 180). If it were the other way around, we would sum 180° for the same reason.
The antipode of Geta is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-60.37453, -160.15545)
In DMS format: 60°22'28.3'' N 19°50'40.4'' E .
