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 Black Point
The DMS coordinates are: 24°6'0'' N 76°22'60'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 24.1°
LngO = -76.38333°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -24.1°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -76.38333 + 180° = 103.61667°
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 Black Point is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-24.1, 103.61667)
In DMS format: 24°6'0'' N 76°22'60'' W.
