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 Narsaq
The DMS coordinates are: 60°54'46.7'' N 46°3'2'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 60.91298°
LngO = -46.05055°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -60.91298°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -46.05055 + 180° = 133.94945°
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 Narsaq is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-60.91298, 133.94945)
In DMS format: 60°54'46.7'' N 46°3'2'' W.
