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 Wotho
The DMS coordinates are: 10°9'56.7'' N 166°0'36.8'' E .
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 10.16575°
LngO = 166.01022°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -10.16575°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = 166.01022 - 180° = -13.98978°
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 Wotho is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-10.16575, -13.98978)
In DMS format: 10°9'56.7'' N 166°0'36.8'' E .
