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 Hohhot
The DMS coordinates are: 40°48'38'' N 111°39'8'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 40.81056°
LngO = 111.65222°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -40.81056°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 111.65222 - 180° = -68.34778°
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 Hohhot is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-40.81056, -68.34778)
In DMS format: 40°48'38'' N 111°39'8'' E .
