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 Brades
The DMS coordinates are: 16°47'30.6'' N 62°12'38.1'' W.
Calculations are easier by using the decimal format, hence:
LatO = 16.79183°
LngO = -62.21058°
Step 2: Calculate the latitude
LatA = - LatO = -16.79183°
Since the latitude is positive (north direction), the antipode must be negative (south direction).
Step 3: Calculate the longitude
LngA = LngO ± 180° = -62.21058 + 180° = 117.78942°
Since the longitude is negative, we sum 180° to ensure the final value lies between (-180, 180). If it were the other way around, we would subtract 180° for the same reason.
The antipode of Brades is located on coordinates: (LatA, LngA) = (-16.79183, 117.78942)
In DMS format: 16°47'30.6'' N 62°12'38.1'' W.
