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 Mahaica Village
The DMS coordinates are: 6°41'2.6'' N 57°55'18.5'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 6.68405°
LngO = -57.92181°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -6.68405°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -57.92181 + 180° = 122.07819°
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 Mahaica Village is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-6.68405, 122.07819)
In DMS format: 6°41'2.6'' N 57°55'18.5'' W.
