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 Kwaluseni
The DMS coordinates are: 26°28'60'' S 31°19'60'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -26.48333°
LngO = 31.33333°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 26.48333°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 31.33333 - 180° = -148.66667°
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 Kwaluseni is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (26.48333, -148.66667)
In DMS format: 26°28'60'' S 31°19'60'' E .
