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 High Rock
The DMS coordinates are: 26°36'36'' N 78°16'43.1'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 26.60999°
LngO = -78.27863°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -26.60999°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -78.27863 + 180° = 101.72137°
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 High Rock is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-26.60999, 101.72137)
In DMS format: 26°36'36'' N 78°16'43.1'' W.
