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 Chinjenje
The DMS coordinates are: 12°55'56.8'' S 14°59'32.6'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -12.93244°
LngO = 14.99238°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 12.93244°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 14.99238 - 180° = -165.00762°
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 Chinjenje is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (12.93244, -165.00762)
In DMS format: 12°55'56.8'' S 14°59'32.6'' E .
