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 Levuka
The DMS coordinates are: 18°4'0'' S 179°19'0'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = -18.06667°
LngO = 179.31667°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = 18.06667°
Since the latitude is negative (south direction), the antipode must be positive (north direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 179.31667 - 180° = -0.68333000000001°
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 Levuka is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (18.06667, -0.68333000000001)
In DMS format: 18°4'0'' S 179°19'0'' E .
