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 Jurby
The DMS coordinates are: 54°21'33.9'' N 4°31'19.2'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 54.35941°
LngO = -4.52199°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -54.35941°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -4.52199 + 180° = 175.47801°
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 Jurby is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-54.35941, 175.47801)
In DMS format: 54°21'33.9'' N 4°31'19.2'' W.
