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 Kuala Belait
The DMS coordinates are: 4°35'1'' N 114°13'52.3'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 4.58361°
LngO = 114.2312°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -4.58361°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 114.2312 - 180° = -65.7688°
Since the longitude is positive, we subtract 180° to ensure the final value lies between (-180, 180). If it were the other way around, we would sum 180° for the same reason.
The antipode of Kuala Belait is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-4.58361, -65.7688)
In DMS format: 4°35'1'' N 114°13'52.3'' E .
