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 Thateng
The DMS coordinates are: 15°25'59.4'' N 106°22'57.8'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 15.43317°
LngO = 106.38272°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -15.43317°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 106.38272 - 180° = -73.61728°
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 Thateng is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-15.43317, -73.61728)
In DMS format: 15°25'59.4'' N 106°22'57.8'' E .
