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 Sinabang

The DMS coordinates are: 2°28'49.1'' N 96°22'48.3'' E. Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:

LatO = 2.4802999°

LngO = 96.3800964°

Step 2: Calculate the latitude

LatA = - LatO = -2.4802999°

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

Step 3: Calculate the longitude

LngA = LngO ± 180° = 96.3800964 - 180° = -83.6199036°

Since the longitude is positive, we substract 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.


Result

The antipode of Sinabang is located on coordinates (LatA, LngA) = (-2.4802999, -83.6199036), or in DMS format: 2°28'49.1'' S 83°37'11.7'' W.
