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 Willemstad

The DMS coordinates are: 12°6'30.2'' N 68°56'0.7'' W.

Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:

LatO = 12.1084°

LngO = -68.93354°

Step 2: Calculate the latitude

LatA = - LatO = -12.1084°

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

Step 3: Calculate the longitude

LngA = LngO ± 180° = -68.93354 + 180° = 111.06646°

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 Willemstad is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-12.1084, 111.06646)

In DMS format: 12°6'30.2'' N 68°56'0.7'' W.
