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 Cedar Grove
The DMS coordinates are: 17°9'44.1'' N 61°49'4.1'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 17.16225°
LngO = -61.8178°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -17.16225°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -61.8178 + 180° = 118.1822°
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 Cedar Grove is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-17.16225, 118.1822)
In DMS format: 17°9'44.1'' N 61°49'4.1'' W.
