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 Aoloau
The DMS coordinates are: 14°19'11'' S 170°46'12'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -14.31972°
LngO = -170.77°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 14.31972°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -170.77 + 180° = 9.23°
Since the longitude is negative, we sum 180° to ensure the final value lies between (-180, 180). If it were the other way around, we would subtract 180° for the same reason.
The antipode of Aoloau is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (14.31972, 9.23)
In DMS format: 14°19'11'' S 170°46'12'' W.
