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 Tai O
The DMS coordinates are: 22°15'18.5'' N 113°51'47.1'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 22.25515°
LngO = 113.86309°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -22.25515°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 113.86309 - 180° = -66.13691°
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 Tai O is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-22.25515, -66.13691)
In DMS format: 22°15'18.5'' N 113°51'47.1'' E .
