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 Utrik
The DMS coordinates are: 11°13'40'' N 169°50'50.6'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 11.22778°
LngO = 169.84739°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -11.22778°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 169.84739 - 180° = -10.15261°
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 Utrik is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-11.22778, -10.15261)
In DMS format: 11°13'40'' N 169°50'50.6'' E .
