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 Ngong Ping
The DMS coordinates are: 22°15'20'' N 113°54'14.1'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 22.25556°
LngO = 113.90391°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -22.25556°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 113.90391 - 180° = -66.09609°
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 Ngong Ping is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-22.25556, -66.09609)
In DMS format: 22°15'20'' N 113°54'14.1'' E .
