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 Abraham’s Bay
The DMS coordinates are: 22°22'0'' N 72°58'0'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 22.36667°
LngO = -72.96667°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -22.36667°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -72.96667 + 180° = 107.03333°
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 Abraham’s Bay is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-22.36667, 107.03333)
In DMS format: 22°22'0'' N 72°58'0'' W.
