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 Aūa
The DMS coordinates are: 14°16'34'' S 170°39'50'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -14.27611°
LngO = -170.66389°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 14.27611°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -170.66389 + 180° = 9.33611°
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 Aūa is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (14.27611, 9.33611)
In DMS format: 14°16'34'' S 170°39'50'' W.
