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 West End
The DMS coordinates are: 26°41'13.6'' N 78°58'37.3'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 26.68711°
LngO = -78.97702°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -26.68711°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -78.97702 + 180° = 101.02298°
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 West End is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-26.68711, 101.02298)
In DMS format: 26°41'13.6'' N 78°58'37.3'' W.
