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 Jabor

The DMS coordinates are: 5°55'15.5'' N 169°38'36.1'' E .

Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:

LatO = 5.92098°

LngO = 169.64335°

Step 2: Calculate the latitude

LatA = - LatO = -5.92098°

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

Step 3: Calculate the longitude

LngA = LngO ± 180° = 169.64335 - 180° = -10.35665°

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 Jabor is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-5.92098, -10.35665)

In DMS format: 5°55'15.5'' N 169°38'36.1'' E .
