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 Ezgharta
The DMS coordinates are: 34°23'50.6'' N 35°53'41.7'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 34.39739°
LngO = 35.89493°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -34.39739°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 35.89493 - 180° = -144.10507°
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 Ezgharta is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-34.39739, -144.10507)
In DMS format: 34°23'50.6'' N 35°53'41.7'' E .
