How to calculate the antipodal point?

The antipode can be calculated by understanding the geographic coordinates and applying simple formulas. We will use the following variables:

  • LatO: Latitude at the origin point.
  • LngO: Longitude at the origin point.
  • LatA: Latitude at the antipodal point.
  • LngA: Longitude at the antipodal point.

Step 1: Obtain the geographic coordinates of Wong Tai Sin

The DMS coordinates are: 22°21'0'' N 114°10'60'' E .

Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:

LatO = 22.35°

LngO = 114.18333°

Step 2: Calculate the latitude

LatA = - LatO = -22.35°

Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).

Step 3: Calculate the longitude

LngA = LngO ± 180° = 114.18333 - 180° = -65.81667°

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 Wong Tai Sin is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-22.35, -65.81667)

In DMS format: 22°21'0'' N 114°10'60'' E .
