How to calculate the antipodal point?

The antipode can be calculated by understanding the geographic coordinates and applying simple formulas. We will use the following variables:

  • LatO: Latitude at the origin point.
  • LngO: Longitude at the origin point.
  • LatA: Latitude at the antipodal point.
  • LngA: Longitude at the antipodal point.

Step 1: Obtain the geographic coordinates of Manaus

The DMS coordinates are: 3°6'7'' S 60°1'30'' W.

Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:

LatO = -3.10194°

LngO = -60.025°

Step 2: Calculate the latitude

LatA = - LatO = 3.10194°

Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).

Step 3: Calculate the longitude

LngA = LngO ± 180° = -60.025 + 180° = 119.975°

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 Manaus is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (3.10194, 119.975)

In DMS format: 3°6'7'' S 60°1'30'' W.
