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 Ntfonjeni
The DMS coordinates are: 25°49'35.7'' S 31°19'38.3'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -25.82659°
LngO = 31.3273°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 25.82659°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 31.3273 - 180° = -148.6727°
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 Ntfonjeni is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (25.82659, -148.6727)
In DMS format: 25°49'35.7'' S 31°19'38.3'' E .
