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 Bodden Town
The DMS coordinates are: 19°16'35.3'' N 81°15'15.1'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 19.27647°
LngO = -81.2542°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -19.27647°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -81.2542 + 180° = 98.7458°
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 Bodden Town is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-19.27647, 98.7458)
In DMS format: 19°16'35.3'' N 81°15'15.1'' W.
