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 Mahaut
The DMS coordinates are: 15°21'48.9'' N 61°23'49.2'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 15.36357°
LngO = -61.39701°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -15.36357°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -61.39701 + 180° = 118.60299°
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 Mahaut is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-15.36357, 118.60299)
In DMS format: 15°21'48.9'' N 61°23'49.2'' W.
